Wicked Best Witches!

2 more Halloween cards today.  These are more swap cards from last Saturday's retreat.  First, I think this "Wicked" card is great!  I love the colors, Rich Razzlebery and Pear Pizzaz.  She added some bling in the form of Dazzling Diamonds to the spider web and a Shimmer Brad to the witch's hat brim.  The web and witch's hat as well as the Wicked saying are from the Wicked Cool stamp set.  I love it!  The greeting, "Wicked" is punched out with the Round Tab Punch and is peeking out from under the embossed Spider Web layer.  Fun, fun!  The ribbon is the 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon, the perfect finishing touch for this Halloween card. 
Second, Best Witches by Kelley Bialoskurski.  She used the Halloween Hoot set with a Concord Crush, Basic Grey, Basic Black color scheme with touches of Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive to brighten it up.  I love how she adhered the Pumpkin Pie 1/4" ribbon on top of the Old Olive 5/8" ribbon for a nice border and the 2 Scallop circles cut from the #2 Scallop Circle die are placed so the Pumpkin Pie one shows between the black scallops.  What a great border for an image stamped and cut with the Circles #2 die. 
Today is October 1st, we only have a month for all the fun Halloween cards and decorations.  I have 3 Halloween classes this month, one will be a 12X12 layout class, one a Halloween card class and one will be a Halloween Treats class.  I'll be posting details in a day or 2 so come back to check it out!
