So.......What's New Blog Hop!

Today is the So......What's New Blog Hop!

If you came here from the talented  Laura at Confessions of a Scrapaholic then you are in the right place!!!!

If not then go back to the beginning of the Hop to our hostess Leah from My Craft and Chat Cafe

Seeing as Halloween is just around the corner I decided to make a Halloween card today for the Hop!

I used the Close to My Heart Witch from the Wicked set.  I stamped it on orange paper and embossed it with Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder.

I then cut a frame from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge.  I just opened it for this Hop and can tell it is going to be one of my favorites.  The frame is cut from MakingMemories Toil & Trouble paper pack.

I placed the frame on top of the witch image and raised it with pop dots.

I then cut a piece of paper from the Debbie Mumm - Harvest & Holiday paper pack for my background.  Pop doted my frame and witch to the background

I added some ribbon that I got at Michaels and a sentiment out of the same orange card stock!

And it's finished!  Here are some close up pics to show the detail

  I would love to hear your feedback!

In honour of this Blog Hop I have some blog candy!  A package of the paper I used for the frame and some embellishments.  In order to win you need to follow my blog and leave a comment under today's and tomorrow's posts.  I will use random org to choose on Sunday, October 16th.
