Aud Sentiments #40 A Funny Card

Another two weeks have passed and we've loved seeing your winter projects but it's time for a new challenge at Aud Sentiments and this time the theme is "A Funny Card". We are being sponsored by Bugaboo and the DT were given images to work with. I've chosen to use the Stella Witch and if the broom fits images.

The image and sentiment have been digitally layered onto a free background from Jak Heath then then cut out with a circle nestie. I've reprinted the image and fussy cut after I've coloured it with promarkers. The black scalloped mat is handmade paper from Costco (rarely been used before) and has lovely metallic flecks through it, I've used the same paper for making the flower - 3 scalloped circles, dampened and scrunched then sewn together with a button and sprayed with glitter spray, all cut on the Grand Caliber (available from Scrapalicious). Card is finished with two bows and some pearls.
Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from my team mates.
