My Little Candy Corn Witch

I have had some unexpected time off from crafting due to a family tragedy. I think I am ready to jump back in with both feet and try to get caught up on my challenges. This little card is for the Anything Goes challenge on Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central. I absolutely love this little Mimosa witch stamp. She is a super cute little witch. My daughter was a candy corn witch for Halloween last year, so when I saw the ruffles on her dress, I knew she would make a perfect candy corn witch too. So, here is a picture of my little candy corn witch

and here is the card she inspired.

I colored Mimosa and her little cat with my copics. I cut her out and then put her on a circle that I turned black with my black soot distress ink. I then matted that circle on one of the new beaded circle nestabilities. I added a spider web border that I cut with the new deep edge spider web punch from Martha Stewart. I finished the card off with a bow topped with a candy corn button. I hope you can join our anything goes challenge we would love to see what you make!!!

Your daughter is adorable and a great inspiration for your card =)
I just love your candy corn witch...I would have never thought of using those colors for a witch but I absolutely LOVE it!
Love that you put the candy corn upside down on your bow too.
