The Witch is staying in the closest.

Ok ... So ... Halloween.  I have found this challenge rather hard.  I love all things witchy, magical and mythical but the spirit of Halloween just is not in Oz :(   I have given it a shot (twice even) but ... I promise next year I will be more prepared.  I will be hollowing out a pumpkin, hanging the decorations and getting in the “spirit” and next year for the month of October we are moving to the US of A!

I really wanted to focus on spiders for this card and used my silver embossing powder to give the effect of a web.  The silver detail is all around the card and mixed into nearly every element and piece)

Thanks to I believe Kate Pullen for the cute little digi spider I found here, and also the Boo to You sentiment found here.

What do I love:
Halloween is a challenge for me.
The little spider and his googly eyes and jewelled toes.
The appearance of the silver emboss making the card very web like.
The to die for glitter bat stickers – I love the slime glow green that makes their details stand out.
It's a simple and clean card but still has that "sparkle to it".
