Clearly Besotted Halloween card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I had my birthday on Friday and the celebrations have been going on all weekend, so I am feeling very lucky to have a such a wonderful family and a great bunch of friends. I even had time to sit down and make a card this afternoon when I was banished from my kitchen, so I decided to play along with the current challenge over at Clearly Besotted where Stephanie has asked us to come up with an autumn or Halloween card. I have had Steph's cute little Magician stamp for ages but not had an opportunity to ink him up so I thought he would make a great Halloween card.

I stamped him, coloured him with Copics and then cut him out with the PTI Tipped Tops Dies. All Magicians should sparkle a little, so I added some Wink of Stella glitter to his robe and the broom handle.

I finished the card off with a trail of stars cut with the Simon Says Stamps Confetti die.

As this little chap had not been used before, I'm going to enter him into Darnell's NBUS challenge, and as the theme is Halloween, I will also play along again at Addicted to Stamps and more - Holiday.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
