Sitting Witch Tilda.

Good morning, crafty bloggers.
Welcome to my two new followers and thank you ladies.
I hope everyone is well?
I really wanted to make a card to celebrate Halloween.
I don't really have much in the way of spooky papers and embellishments but, Sitting Tida Witch has been waiting patiently in among my collection of Magnolia stamps to be bought to life! Lol!!!
So here is what I have come up with.........................
I have made the 6"x6" card base with 300gsm white Conqueror card.
The papers are Maja Design "Walking In The Forest" from Dies To Die For.
I have lightly sanded the edges of the papers and matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
The white doily and pretty lace are from Ebay.
I stamped Sitting Witch Tilda with Memento "rich cocoa" ink onto Neenah cardstock and cut the image out using a Spellbinders decorative labels one. I have coloured her with Polychromos pencils. I surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts and inked around the label with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink.
The large brown flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have inked the edges of the flower with a white ink pad.
The brad in the centre of the flower was sent to me by my super bloggy friend. I have attached some silver plated curb chain and rings to hang the pumpkin charm. I can't remember where I bought the charm from?
The sentiment is a freebie from Birds Cards.
I have printed the sentiment onto white card and used a Spellbinders beaded oval to cut it out. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink and added some tiny white pearls.
The Victorian picket fence is by Cheery Lynn. I have cut the fence with Woodware recycled card.
For the flower arrangement I have used Kort & Godt white rolled roses from Live & Love Crafts and a 25mm curly white rose, 15mm orange roses and 15mm brown roses all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have placed a 5mm tan pearl onto the centre of the rolled roses. The pearls are also from
In between the arrangement I have place some white punched branches which I have inked the edges with Tim Holtz "tea dye" distress ink.
The Woodland branch punch is a Martha Stewart punch.

I have added ArtDeco Glamour Dust to her bow in her hair and the edge of her dress.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with an Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I have decorated inside the card to compliment the front.
I hope you like my card?
I am entering my card into the following super challenges;
