Dust Off the Spells, You Wizards and Witches

     I've been working on Halloween cards and have almost enough to send out to all the kids, grandkids, and great grands.  However, this particular card is for a friend who celebrates her birthday on Halloween and I try to do a Halloween themed, birthday card for her each year.  I've always teased her that she must have magic spells to keep her age from showing.  :-D

     I also did this one for the challenge at Catch the Bug (Bugaboo Stamps image) and it should bring a smile.

     Believe it or not, this is a single layer card.  I started with placement of the black and white. outline image (plus the sentiment), then I scanned some saved packaging from a stamp set I bought a couple of years ago, and used my Word software to make strips of it at the top and bottom of what became the card front.

     I colored with ProMarkers, added the bow, and it was done!   Fun card but not all that fast.  Scanning and playing with the Word program took nearly an hour before I ever got to start coloring.  :-D
