Witching you....

Today is a new challenge day at 2 Sisters.  The challenge this week is to use gingham or plaid on your project.  We are being sponsored this week by Crafty Sentiments. The image I am using can be purchased as both a rubber stamp and a digital stamp.  This adorable image is called Annabel Pumpkin Witch.

The sketch that I used is from Cute Card Thursday.  The base of my card is black. I added a piece of orange cardstock to the top. I added faux stitching around the orange.  I added a piece of spiderweb cardstock to the bottom. I cut a circle out of green card stock, cut it in half, added faux stitching around it, backed it in black and cut around it with scalloped scissors. I added a halloween gingham ribbon across the middle. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, added faux stitching around it and then backed it in black.  I printed the sentiment out on my computer and punched it out using a 1 3/8" circle punch. I backed it in black and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  I punched mini spiders out of black and added them all over the card.  I added a puffy bow made out of black tulle, added a pumpkin button to the middle of it and added it to the ribbon.

I finished the inside of my card by adding a piece of spiderweb card stock cut a little smaller than the card base. I typed the sentiment on the computer, added faux stitching around it and backed it in orange. I also backed a piece of white card stock in orange and added faux stitching to it. I added some more of the mini spiders all over the inside of the card. I always have trouble finishing off the insides of my cards (even though I love the way they look when it is done). So I am entering this card into the it's a hard theme challenge at Fab n Funky.
