Hello, and welcome to another Monday!  Since it’s the third Monday of the month, it’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy.  For the next couple of weeks we’re getting into a Halloween mood by focusing on a theme of “Any Witch Way You Can”.  Cards for this challenge should show a witch, or something that easily depicts a witch (such as a witch’s hat or shoes) – and be an A2 card (4.25″ x 5.5″) and flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing.  Your card can be scary, cute, or anything in between.

I took the cute route with my card.  I really don’t have any witch stamps, but I do have a Lawn Fawn Halloween-themed set.  The cat wearing a witch hat was my solution for this challenge.  I felt that making her appear to be riding the broom helped her look even more like a witch.  I colored the cat as close to black as I could without losing the details of her face and still providing contrast with the hat.  I pieced the background together using a few designer papers.  The stars are cut from the blue paper to show the yellow underneath.  I’ve used one of my go-to sketches from the OWH Stars & Stamps blog for the layout, but scooted the image panel toward the center of the card since I decided not to put a sentiment on it.

This card just “might” be a sneak peek of an upcoming Hope You Can Cling To challenge at Splitcoaststampers.com, too!  I’m not at liberty yet to reveal just what the details of that challenge could be.  You’ll just have to keep checking in at SCS to see.  It also fits in with the current Lawnscaping challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Now go check out what the rest of the Cards in Envy design team has made.  I’m sure they’d love it if you visit their blogs and leave a comment.  Then share your own witchy card with us at the CIE site by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, November 2.  We’d love to have you play along with us!
