bitten by the bug 2

happy monday :) this week over at bbtb2 its our sweet and awesomely talented susans turn to pick our challenge. she chose the witch from happy hauntings. i really want this cart.. but it'll have to stay on my wish list for now. i used a childs year instead. if you dont own the cart go ahead and used a different one too
i cased this card from one of my fave designers audrey pettit. you can view her awesome card ~~>here<~~. when i saw her card i knew it was one my daughter would just love so i just had to do it :)
                                                          so heres my take
i used a doily that i cut off the outer lacy part of, and adhered that part under the brown ribbon ( nifty idea audrey !)i also added a bit of cloth under that. i inked it using tim holtz distess ink.i also added viva decor pearl drops to the witch. the bat is an ead vinyl sticker. i used my brand spankin new singo white pen for some faux stitching.   

 heres an up close of the paper doily. happy halloween is another ead sticker. paper is recollections. pearls are viva decor pearl pen. i just noticed my faux stitching wasnt finished. it is now ;)
thanks so much for stopping by the blog and as always your comments make me smile :) thank you for that .be sure to check out the bbtb2 blog to see the rest of the witches...errr i mean design team ladies have whipped up in their cauldrons for ya :)  and be sure to play along with us :)  have a great day :) xxxshelly
