I had all afternoon to craft yesterday and it was so nice and relaxing.  So today, I will share a little card I made during that time.  I used Annabel the Witch, by Crafty Sentiments.  I struggled a bit with her, but in the end, I think it all came together.  I decided to go with a good witch color for her had and add a bit of yellow and purple for the dress and hat.  I cut her out with Spellbinders Labels 23.  I distressed everything and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  This is a gate fold card adorned with Wild Orchid flowers and a doily.

Copics used:

Skin:  E000, E00, E21, E33, R20
Hair:  G92, G94, G99
Dress:  Y11, Y13, Y15, BV20
Hat/Boots:  RV91, RV95, RV99
Pumpkin:  YR15, YR27, YR68
Bucket/Broom:  E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E49

I kept the inside simple, with a little distressing, tag and ribbon.

Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs & Forest Moss)
Wild Orchid flowers
Paper:  Cosmo Cricket, MME, Simple Stories (Awesome & Fabulous)

So here is the remainder of the hop!  Rock on!
