Mouse on a Broom by Gerda Steiner Designs

This card, for the September Challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs, features an adorable Mouse on a Broom digi, which I received free because I entered last month's challenge.  It makes a perfect card for my daughter-in-law's Halloween birthday.

Here's a close up of the little witch.  

I colored her hat and cape with purple Wink of Stella glitter.  I hope you can see it. 

Additional challenges I am entering....
Aud Sentiments Challenge Week 140 - Anything Goes with a sentiment 
As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Die and Why (The scalloped oval die by Spellbinders is the first one I purchased and is my 'go to' die.  It is very versatile and I get a great cut every time.)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #329 - Add some bling
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Anything Goes no topping
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #86 - Anything Goes or Halloween
Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #223 - Fun with Puns (Witch instead of Which)

My apologies for the rather short blog posts this week.  I have been watching my 18 month old great-granddaughter, Laila, in the afternoons.  My, what a busy little one she is!  It's hard to get a photo of her cuteness....

 until after our walk when she is quite asleep!

The little darling will be here before I know it so I'd best get a few things done.  Have a great day!
