Be-Witchingly, Boo- tee -Ful

How could i resist?  The Greeting Farm makes a post with a brand new witch digi and i fell for it...and you can see why..i am not kidding i purchased it yesterday and made the card today!

I know some people don't like Halloween and the celebration, i grew up in the 60's where it wasn't about "evil" but about dressing up and a way to visit our neighbors that i never got to see.  i know, that now, some people have ruined what was nothing but a way to visit our neighbors and for kids to dress-up into something bad.  I choose to look at the good and not let the bad win out.  

So with that thought i've created a sweet good witch card:
I used a Martha Steward spiderweb border punch.  I also made a tiny slit in her hat and gathered up some black tulle and slid it through.  One of the new techinques i did was to use my Envelope Punch to make the the notches in the strip, i cut out my matted black paper and punched it and remembered what i punched it at and then cut out the black stripe and punched the notch out so that it could line up..in this case i punched at 4.5 (black mat) and then the stripe at 4 3/8.  So more than one way to use that tool..  I think it would make a fun tie shape too..
