Witzy says Happy Halloween

Hello, friends.  I made a Halloween card yesterday - this one is for a young friend who loves Witzy the duck.  I didn't want to make it too scary but it looks scary enough LOL.  However, Witzy is not frightened - I just love the sweet look on his face here - he's so cute!

 

*Inkadinkado Clear Stamps GHOULS AND GOBLINS 98546I started my card by covering a white card base with black cardstock and then added this beautiful Halloween backing paper that I got as a freebie from Crafty Moments (thank you, Vince).  Next I embossed the Happy Halloween sentiment with glittery black embossing powder.  I coloured little Witzy with pencils, fussy-cut, and affixed with foam tape.  I added two strips of yellow string across the bottom of the card and embellished with three black buttons tied with yellow string.  Here are the supplies used:

This is a fabulous Halloween card, I love your gorgeous background, it was a bit of a surprise seeing Witzy the duck on a Halloween card.
Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog - I can't believe Joanna Sheen has discontinued the CD, it doesn't seem like it has been out that long and it was a very popular one.
