Let Us Form a Calming Circle

 Hello, friends! I posted a few days ago that I had seen new sets at Vera Lane Studio with images inspired by Hocus Pocus, so of course I HAD to get these amazing sets! I already shared my card with Winifred, and today I am back with Mary!

I used a die set from The Stamps of Life for my card base and some of the layering pieces--specifically the ones on the "top". The BOO! sentiment is from Great Impressions and, unfortunately, not available anymore.

I used the Vera Lane Studio sentiment as the prop up for this easel card. The spider web pattern is from another Great Impressions stamp. The patterned papers I used are from Honeybee Stamps. I colored the image with alcohol markers before fussy cutting it and adding it to the front with dimensional foam.

I had a ton of fun making this card, and I love the way it turned out! For one of the challenges I am entering, I have to explain why I like either Halloween or Fairies better, and I chose this card to enter for that reason! I LOVE Halloween. It's a time of year when children get excited and you get to dress up as someone or something else. As a teacher, it is one of my absolute favorite times of the school year because of all the fall fun we can have! I do love fairies, but if they are in competition with Halloween, Halloween has to win. includes fairies, technically! ;) 

I am entering this creation into the following fabulous challenges~

As You Like It: Halloween or Fairies & WHY

CD Sunday Plus: Anything CD/USB/Digital

Crafting Happiness: Halloween

Make My Monday: Autumn Colors

Inspiration Station: Inspiration Photo

Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends! I hope you take some time to create soon and, if you can, enter some or all of these amazing challenges! Until next time, HUGS and happy crafting, friends!
