Distressed Witch

I created this halloween card using Fancy Sunbonnet Witch from Bugaboo Stamps. The base of my card is black card stock. I added a piece of striped card stock that I inked the edges using a black ink pad.  I cut a block of purple card stock, inked the edges and backed it in black card stock. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, cut it into a square, inked the edges and backed it in black card stock. I cut a square piece of orange card stock then cut it in half diagonally.  Then I inked the edges of each triangle. I added gold stickles to the buckle on the hat and on the boot.  I added green rhinestones to finish the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
