Hello Everyone,

Thank You for joining me over at My Craft Spot today! 

It's technically my week off from DT Assignments, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create an adorable shaped card for this week's EMBOSS IT! Challenge. For FULL details on the challenge, click HERE.

So without further ado, I send you all my Best Witches with this Witch Turtle Shaped Card. 
She was cut from the new Cricut Create A Critter 2 Cartridge at 5-1/2". I cut the Witch Hat and Belly from some scraps I had left from Echo Park Paper Chillingsworth Manor 6x6 Paper Pad.

 I replaced the original Hat Buckle for some of My Craft Spot's "Toadally Green" Crinkle Ribbon. I folded the ribbon in half lengthwise to make it thinner to fit around the Witch's Hat. Detailed it with some Black Diamond Stickles and a Rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I EMBOSSED her Belly with the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and added some Eucalyptus Stickles to the edges. 

No Witch is complete without her trusty Broom. I cut out the Broom Stick from a scrap piece from the My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side2 6x6 Paper Pad.

I replaced the Broom Bristles with some "Buttercup" Twinery Twine - available HERE at My Craft Spot. Some "Chocolate Truffle" Trendy Twine was used to hold the "Broom Bristles" together, but got hidden behind the Sentiment Tag.  

To the Broom, I added a tag stamped with the "Best Witches To You" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Best Witches To You" Stamp Set with some "Orange Licorice" Trendy Twine - available HERE at My Craft Spot.

 I used some of my homemade deminsionals between the back shell, body and top shell.

I stamped the inside of the Shaped Card with the "Happy Halloween" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Ghostly Greetings" Stamp Set. 

I hope you have enjoyed my "BEST WITCHES TURTLE" and have inspired you to use some of the amazing My Craft Spot products and use the stamps in creative ways.
