Kitty Witch and Cheery Lynn

I will be so sad to see October leave as I love making Halloween cards.  I started my card with a green panel cut from my Cheery Lynn Designs Kaleidoscope Lace French Flair die.  This is 6 1/8" square.  Using spray adhesive, I glued it down to a piece of black card stock and then hand trimmed around the edge of the die cut.  Using my Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair Classic dies, I cut the dotted black panel.  This adorable Kitty Witch is a new image from Karen's Doodles.  I hand trimmed the image around the circle of the moon and then fussy cut around the cat and broom.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Spiderweb behind the image to give it kind of a moon glow. 

I finished the inside of the card with the same dies.  Then using the new Cheery Lynn Designs Expandable Quilling Strip die, I created the flower using text weight paper and a quilling tool.  I created 5 orange petals, 3 green leaves and then 3 yellow coils for the center of the flower.  The great thing about this kind of flower is how well it will go through the mail.  Because it has such a low profile, it won't lose it's shape.  This card will fit in a 6.5 inch envelope.
