Purple Halloween witch (Spesch image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's another Halloween card I created today using a gorgeous little witch from Spesch Designer Stamps. I have forgotten where I got the haunted house image from, I'm very sorry I can't give you details on where you can find it, I believe it may have been a free image online but can't be sure. 

I embossed the purple paper which is still very new to me. I bought heaps of embossing folders but rarely use them as they just haven't become one of my "go to" items yet. Hopefully they will as I always love seeing embossing on bloggers' cards.

We have brand new flowers in a rainbow of colours at Flourish with a Bling and to celebrate we are selling them at only $2 a pack (rrp $3) for this month only. Click on our name to go to our online store and check out all of our gorgeous products.

  3. Oh this is darling! You are such a great colorist! I love that her hair looks soft and not overly shiny. I have a lot of embossing folders too but don't use them as much as I could, I am never quite sure where to put them that the embossing is still visible. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Ppinkydolls ! I hope to see you back again soon! TFS and good luck! ~DT Lizzy
