Trick or Treat Card **Raise the Bar**

I was asked to be a GDT for Raise the Bar again this week.  For this challenge the theme is "Hat's Off", so simple use and image that has a hat in it somewhere.  For my hat image I had this really cute one of a witch, and had some really fun papers left over from a layout I had done last year.  I used the colors in the papers and matched with when I colored the witch (I am not the best a coloring, and I used map pencils and textured cardstock - not sure if I like the look of the texture under the cardstock, but it was an experiment).  I also use some weaving to create a fun look, and i made sure the little spider what showing on the top of the weaved papers.  I make sure none of the white edges were showing I inked all the edges of every paper on this card, fun little tip for ya!!

Fun little interactive flip up under the "Trick or Treat" sticker
I really like the fun cute image, and this will be one of the cards I give to my kids teacher this Halloween.

Thanks for taking  a look and please don't forget to head on over to Raise the Bar and enter in your very own "Hat's Off" project!!
