Best Witches--Crazy4Challenges #2

Are you ready for another Crazy4Challenges challenge?! Today we have another rockin' sketch by Cindy Haffner, this month's hostess.

This was a totally fun card to make--and so easy!!! I love it--two minimally or no stamping cards in two days! I got this set of Crafty Secrets Halloween Journal Notes several weeks ago from Sharon Johnson's store and thought it was time to bring it out. These witches just crack me up!!! The neutral tones sort of dictated my color scheme to an extent, but I added Rich Razzleberry to spice it up a bit. I cut out the image and distressed the edges a bit before matting it with Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, and Sahara Sand. The base card mechanics should be pretty easy to figure out. The sentiment is from the same Journal Note, and as you can see, the lines for writing start right under it. So I decided to incorporate them as a guide for my Dew Drop accent. I cut the sentiment out with a Nestabilities Petite Oval die and matted it with a scalloped Rich Razzleberry layer. Ribbon is from My Favorite Thing's Royalty Collection Ribbon Nest. I love how this card turned out and hope you do too! It was so easy--I'll be using more of these Journal Notes!

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of the Crazy4Challenges team!
