A Witches' Brew Halloween

Fright night is getting closer and I've been working on a few Halloween projects. Luckily for me, the Paper Players have a Halloween theme for their challenge this time and I found a great simple sketch to work with at Unscripted Sketches.

I love the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper, so I really wanted to play it up. You'll notice there is hardly any stamping on this card; I let the spooky patterned paper do all the hard work. Ha!

I wanted to give the circle a little more definition from the background paper, so I lightly edged it using a 2-Way Glue Pen and then sprinkled on orange glitter. I think it does the job and adds just the right amount of sparkle.

I was dying to flag the ends of the patterned paper, but forced myself to leave them square just this once!
