Here is my card for today!
And the close up...

Well we don't really "do" Halloween here in Australia - although there are a few kids who've picked up on the idea of free lollies these days, so we occasionally get a little ghoul at the door lol! We always make sure to have some bags of goodies ready just in case ;)
So being that it isn't big here, I have to say this is my very first actual Halloween card. But this little witch was so adorable I couldn't resist. Firstly, the cute curls reminded me of my gorgeous nieces, and secondly, her name is "Samantha". As a little girl I loved the show 'Bewitched', (and yes I wished I was Tabitha and tried to Twitch my nose) so I've made a "Halloween Exception"!
This cute little "Samantha" is by Lia Stampz, now available from Whimsy Stamps, and the Halloween Ticket Sentiments are by Raindrop Echo.
I've fussy cut and double mounted her on a swirly embossed background to make her stand out, and the bats and witches on the paper took away the need for too much embellishment. I just added the tickets for the sentiments, and some ribbon and the lace - which sort of looks cob-webby ;) - and I was done! Hope you like my sweet little witch!

What a great Halloween card! Your choice of colored papers is great, with the blue one reminding of the night sky and the yellow as the moon. The bats add to the Halloween feel of this card!
