Happy Halloween!

I really like the bold patterns in the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper, in the Holiday Catalog.  This is one of the cards I had at last month's stamp class, and one of the ladies didn't need any Halloween cards, so she just used the same layout and papers, changed her images, and she had a nice fall card.  For a Halloween card, I really liked the cute witch.  She is not too scary, and perfect for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. 
After I stamped my witch onto Very Vanilla cardstock using Basic Black ink, I colored in her hat and buttons using my Tangerine Tango marker to give her a bit more color.  Another new item used on this card is the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch.  It is the perfect size for my sentiment, and by placing it on with dimensionals, my ribbon bow was able to set nicely behind it.
