Bewitched Halloween Greetings!

It's almost Halloween, so it's time for some Halloween Greetings!

This week the Sunflowers & Dragonflies Creative Designs DT wants you to make Halloween cards for this weeks blog challenge!

Anyone can play along in the challenge. There are no limits on time or supplies. Of course we’d prefer that you use images by Sunflowers and Dragonflies, but feel free to use other images. However, there is a bonus if you do use a Sunflowers and Dragonflies Image, you'll receive an extra entry in the drawing for the weekly challenge prize!! So, if you have any S&D stamps it would be worth it to use them! Please post a direct link to your challenge project from either your blog or an online gallery to the Sunflowers and Dragonflies Blog, specifically on the Challenge #14 Blog Post, so we can view it. If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword S&D14.

This week's prize is 3 of Sunflowers & Dragonflies New Halloween images- Little Witch, Pretty Little Pumpkin and Scarecrow!
Deadline is next Friday October 30th.

My challenge card uses the Little Witch image.

Stamps: Sunflowers and Dragonflies Creative Designs-Little Witch, DRS Designs-Spider Web
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, SU! So Saffron, Apricot Appeal
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by The Paper Company
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Nesties, Black ribbon by Offray, Black eyelets by Joann's Scrap Essentials, Orange ribbon by Joann's Holiday Inspirations, EK Success Corner Rounder, Orange Glitter Glue
Finished Card Size: 4 7/8" x 4 7/8"

I colored this image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the colors with Gamsol. I created a Post-It Note mask & then sponged yellow & light orange ink around her to make it appear as if she was flying in front of the moon. I put some orange Glitter Glue on the band of her hat for a touch of sparkle.

Well, that's it for today. We are going to a Halloween party today & I need to put the finishing touches on my costume. I hope to upload some pics for you to see sometime tomorrow. It should be a blast, as no one is talking about their costumes. It a big surprise for all!

Hope you have a great weekend!
