Wicked Colors CC344

Hi Everyone! I took some time off this past week, to do some stuff around the house, and go camping with my boys this past weekend to Indiana Dunes State Park. It was a Boy Scout camping trip, and I really had a great time. I didn't have to do ANYTHING. No cooking, no clean up, just me and the awesome weather, and a good book... AHHH! So that is where I have been, I hope you didn't miss me to much. :)
In my last post, I mentioned that I had been asked to be a guest designer for the color challenges over on Splitcoaststampers. Well it is Tuesday, so that means I have another challenge card to share. :) This weeks hostess gave us some really fun colors to work with...Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, and Pumpkin Pie. The dessert option was to make a Halloween card. Sounds fun right? OK here is my card for the challenge -

So didn't I say they were FUN?!
 I made the witches feet using the Top Note Die for the Big shot. I used the smaller end, cut off to where I wanted, then scored down the center to the point on the "heel". I used a 1/2" circle punch for the holes where her legs are, and a 1" punch to form the top of her shoe. I punched half of a circle starting at the point of her shoe. Then I saved the punched portion and used that as a guide to punch the other side/shoe. The scallop on the bottom of her dress was made with a large corner rounder punch. I just removed the guard to and lined the edge of the paper up with the metal on the under side of the punch. Her Broom is made from a rolled scrap of black paper, held together with sticky strip, and a strip of Elegant Eggplant DSP cut in strips on both sides, and tied with some Elegant eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon. OK That's it for me... Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)
