Witchy Poo-(ch)


Here's a Halloween card made with one of Tim Holtz's crazy dogs and of course I made him a witch's hat (with the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy accessories stamp set) to get him ready for Halloween. The background border panel was done with a Tim Holtz shattered stencil along with citron, marmalade, and violet distress inks, and matted with purple cardstock. I used my Big Shot to die-cut the orange stitched rectangle with a Lil Inker die, as well as the green cardstock base. The sentiment is also from Tim Holtz, and the jelly dots are from Stampendous.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - "Spooky"

Tuesday Throwdown #317 - Add a Border

Little Red Wagon #365 - Stencil It

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your little ghosts and goblins are getting ready for a fun Halloween on Monday :) Have a great weekend!
