The Cutting Cafe` - The Bad Witch

Hey everyone, here is a card I made for The Cutting Cafe` using The Halloween Time Printable Stamp Set. This set comes with 55 images! It was hard to choose which ones I wanted to play with. I decided to go with the theme The Wizard of Oz. So I chose "The BAD witch" sentiment and the witch's stockings/shoes. This card was inspired by the scene where the house falls on the wicked witch, LOL. The scale may not be exact but you get the idea =)

I had a blast making this. It has all the elements that I love: lace, bling, flowers and glitter.
