Hazel the witch

Good Morning everyone,
Have had a really funny week, not ha!ha! but mood swings, really felt under the weather, especially on Monday really had the blues....but feeling a lot better today, my grandaughter says its my hormones ha!ha! But you can't let it get on top of you so I flung myself in to making a card for Candice for Halloween...not my favourite holiday, but I think you will agree with me this image by Sylvia Zet is absolutly gorgeous, she is such a hunny:).  I haven't put any flowers on, which was really hard, but had to make it a little bit girly so added two lovely black ribbon bows on my lace.  I didn't want to hide the papers as they are really stunning, they are freebies from bearly mine.  Donna is such a generous person, and has the most beautiful papers, if you haven't been on her site, please take a look you wont be dissapointed!!  Don't you just love that little bat, he has such adoration in his eyes for little Hazel, anyone who has a pet knows that look LOL!!
I have used three types of papers from Bearly mine, matted on to black card, black guipure lace from WOC. Image is a digi download from Sylvia Zet, and I have coloured it in with prisma pencils (which I love..) I resized one of Donnas papers, and cut out the spider webs to put into the corners, think they have come out quiet well don't you? I have put a papermania adhesive shimmer dot on all the spider webs for a bit of bling. Also some glitter on Hazels lace on her dress.
I must just share this with you, I made top three at Lily of the valley last week for my little ivy card, I was walking on air last week, I was so thrilled, couldn't believe it when I saw my name on there LOL!!  Maybe thats why I was so blue on Monday, I had used up all my carma!!lol!!
