The Witch is In!

For this card I decided to combine two challenges.  It had been awhile since I had actually done a challenge and I felt it was time to jump back in.  So I used the sketch from Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge.


# 368 to be exact.  I saw this while I was surfing the net of some of my favorite blogs when I saw it and thought this is one I would love to do.

Next, just today I found a cool blog called...
Ema-gination that I had never been to before, but she has some great cards.  I clicked on her link that listed all the challenges she has been a part of over the years and was amazed at the list of blog challenges out there.  The one I was drawn to has a color challenge this week, to use Navy, Olive, and Purple.  What a cool combination and it isn't one I use.... ever now that I think of it.  Now I am wondering why I haven't.  Anyhoo, the challenge is from "Just Us Girls".  Here is the link to their blog.

So here is my card that I came up with after the above inspiration.  It came together quickly and I kept it totally simple.

The olive/green patterned paper and he navy patterned paper I put behind the layers is all from a collection I have had for years by Basic Grey.  The creme and kraft cardstock is from Recollections.  

The Images came from my recent Hampton Art stamps you have been seeing lately.  I am love getting these new stamps all inky.  By the way, know how the witch is in?  When her broom stick is hanging around...at least that is what I was thinking when I came up with which images to use.

I used brown Staz On ink and added some bling.  The purple bling behind the image layer is Recollections purple glitter tape.  I don't use this tape often and am always looking for ways to incorporate it into my cards.  This totally fit the bill for tonight's combo.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great week!
