If the broom fits!!

Ha! Don't ya just love this card?? Oh my, as soon as I saw this set over at the Doodle Factory I just had to have it. Did I mention I LOOOOVVVVEEE Halloween? Isn't she a hoot!!

And do you see what I got over the weekend??? Yup, the new Martha Stewart spider web border and corner punches. I couldn't believe that Michael's had them. I got the last corner punch so I felt pretty lucky. They do make a nice mat, don't they? Oh, and if you have any of these punches, I found that in order to get them to make a perfect square or rectangle, you have to cut your paper at a minimum of 3 1/4" and go up in 1 3/4" increments from there. Example: 3 1/4" x 5" or like for my card, I used a 5" x 5" square.
For the card base, I started with a piece of purple cardstock and layered some lime green Bazzil Bling CS on top. Then I layered the SU Basic Black piece punched with my new spider web punches. The DP is from K & Company and I picked it up last year at my LSS. This paper is SO cool. It's flocked and it really looks like a night sky doesn't it? I stamped my witch with some Momento Tuxedo Black and colored her with my Copics. I added a little Stickles to the stars and then adhered a few dimensionals to make her pop off the sky! I stamped the sentiment from the set onto the same purple cardstock and added a button with some lime green thread and she's all set! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think of her. Have a great day!
