Not Too Halloweenie: Day 17 of 31 Days of Halloween

Greetings! Today I bring you another card using a fabulous digi from StampInsanity. It’s Witch Morgan and you can buy here HERE. But even though she’s supposed to be used for Halloween, I used very un-Halloween colors, and I love the end result! I would definitely use this card for other times throughout the year! I hope you like it too…


I love the bright and cheery colors. I started off by coloring my image, like I always do…then I found the papers and stuff later.


Here’s a close up. You can see I used 3 colors of Stickles on the card for some extra zing. What do you think of my Blue Moon? One of the other Groovy Gurlz (I am SO sorry that I can’t remember who!) made a blue moon and I was totally inspired!


Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, posted on my sidebar. Have an inspiring day!!!
