Full Moon

 Hello friends,

Today's card is for a friend that could really use a giggle.  We always had fun together on Halloween taking our kids tricker treating when they were little and had a tons of laughs doing it, so I always think of her at Halloween.

 I colored this sassy witch that I purchased from Stamp it Crazy  up with Copics and cut her out.  I stamped, colored and cut out just the the bum and panties a second time and popped it up over a Spell binders circle that has been sponged with Memento Tangelo.  The broom, spiders and webs are from a Graphic 45 - Hampton Art set.  The broom was colored up quickly with Distress markers and cut out.  The fabulous orange ribbon is from May Arts and the black satin ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon Club. I added a ZVA Creative black rhinestone flourish that I cut up to fit my card. To finish it off I added Black Diamond Stickles to the spider bodies.
She is just to sassy! Her cheeks are a little rosy because She can feel the frosty autumn breeze. I freeze my butt off on Halloween  every year. Most years there is snow on the ground here.

  I am entering this card in the following challenges.....
Joanna Sheen ~ Autumn Breeze
