"That's Ga-Linda, With a Ga"

I've been a little slow on the Halloween band wagon. The holiday isn't wildly popular in Germany, so it hasn't been at the top of my list!! But, I did need to get this little witch out...and after one or two other cards, I thought I needed to make a good witch! I was listening to Wicked...(GREAT stamping music!!) and well, this cute little Galinda was born! Her sparkles are beautiful IRL, they glisten just like I think she would!

The card is pumpkin pie, followed with a pixie pink layer. The scalloped edge(surprise!) punch got busy on a strip of black cardstock and was tied up with some black gingham ribbon. I did add a touch of solid black grosgrain to the tie when I tied the ribbon up. Galinda is from the LAD Little People stamp set and was stamped in black pallete ink and colored in with SU markers, Real Red, Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Blush Blossom, and Creamy Caramel. She is layerd on pixie pixie pink, and pumpkin pie paper(from the summer pic nic set) and a little black scallop to finish the ensamble! She was glitified with a 2 way glue pen and dazzling diamonds. The sentiment is called Witch Saying and is a LAD simply single stamp. I love candy corn...and how fun to be able to make them match!! This little candy corn and the 'Boo to you' came from the Spooked stamp set. I colored them in with the markers to get the colors I wanted! Fun, Fun, Fun! And yes, the middle corn is poped with a dimensional. I used the 1" circle, 1 1/4" circle punches from SU, and the yellow size marvy uchida scallop circle punch for this little ditty.

So, that sums up Galinda. I'll be back with "Elphaba!" Thanks for stopping by!! Make it a great one!
