Witching you a Happy Halloween

 Hello everyone
Do you know what today is??
It's Hump Daaaaay!  :)
Today I am sharing a fun Halloween card that I created for my Design Team post over at Craftin Desert Diva's:
I found this adorable witch image at the Silhouette Online Store, and I just knew I HAD to make something with it!! :)
Now, let  me tell you something. This image was REALLY hard to cut out on paper. Some of the details are quite small so my image kept  tearing. :( 
I tried several different thicknesses of paper, but in the end, I used VINYL!!  It worked PERFECTLY! 
I added a few vinyl bats as well.

I then added some cute diagonal striped ribbon that I got from 3 Girl Jam!

I stamped my card with a sentiment from one of Tara's newest releases "Wonderful Wicked"
 And that will do it for my project today.
I hope you liked it!   :)
