Papercraft Star Challenge #118

Greetings y'all!

I hope you're having a good week.  Things this week are a bit crazy, due to the end of month stuff again, but all in all it's not a disaster...yet. lol  I'm happy to report that I am off next week again, as I need to head back to my moms, in order to settle some personal business.  I look forward to that, as always.

So, I have another Papercraft Star project to share with you today.  The theme this week is:

Halloween Witch!
Once I saw the theme for this week, I knew exactly which stamp I wanted to use.  It's been in my stash for a while, and I love it.  Here is what I created.
My card turned out exactly how I saw it in my head.  I actually think it turned out a bit better than expected. lol  I love the CAS look, and it's not too bulky, so I can send it to someone without issue.  Gotta love those distress inks, as usual, as they worked perfeclty for what I wanted to do.  I wasn't sure what sentiment I wanted to include, and am thinking I may not even need one.  Another card for my stash, woo hoo!

Challenges I'm happy to include in my card today:

Raise The Bar #116 - Which is witch?
Card Crafters Circle #45 - Halloween
Card Makin Mama's - Halloween
Crafty Catz #155 - Halloween
Retro Sketches #34 - Sketch

Come and Get It Challenge - Halloween

As always, there are some amazing projects posted over at the PCS blog today.  I do hope you'll get the chance to check them out, and hopefully play along.  We sure love it when you share your wonderful projects with us!

What a perfect card (I mean, not just for our Opus Gluei challenge, but a perfect card all around). I love the clean and simple style of this but then it has an elegance with that image of the witch flying across the sky and the deeply radiant moon. Gee, can you tell I liked it? LOL

This is terrific and perfect for the Opus Gluei theme! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us, now can we get you to come back for more fun with us?
