Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Halloween

Hello, friends.  It's Sunday and that means it's time for another challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is a fun one:  Halloween.  What a cute image I got to play with this week!  It's called AVK Witch Kitty from one of our generous sponsors, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Any time I receive an image with a cat for my DT card, I am happy LOL. 
I coloured the image with pencils, die-cut into an oval, mounted on a black oval, stamped the "eek!" sentiment at the top, and added lavender Stickles on the witch's hat and boots.  For the card itself, I started with a white base, covered it with black cardstock and added a panel of digi paper.  I love this purple ghost digi paper - it's from a paper pack called Halloween Cuties and it is from another one of our generous sponsors, Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet.  Next I added some black ribbon and bow, and affixed the image with foam tape.  Lastly I embellished with a purple witch's hat, a black cat, and a glittery spider web.  Here are the supplies used:
I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Halloween challenge - we have some great prizes up for grabs, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet - $10 gift certificate to be spent on images from

This card is super cute - I love the purple and black - your witch looks so lovely with her sparkly hat and shoes and the DP is awesome. your embellishments are great fun and I love the black cat. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
