If the broom fits...

Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge over at Aud Sentiments. We're being sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo and asking you to use a funny sentiment.

I chose this fab image as it's the family joke that my Mother in law is a witch and I knew she'd love this!

 I made a 3D card, following a tutorial by the very talented Desire Fourie, you can find it here. The papers are freebies which I found at Activity Village. I spotted the witch's hat ribbon a few weeks ago at the local Boyes and had to get it, with the Mother in law in mind....hehe, she's not really a witch, she's lovely...

I found that the card kept toppling forwards, I can't have quite got the folds right, so I made a support to add to the back and adjusted the balance so it leant back a bit...there's plenty of room on the back to add any messages...
I've coloured the image using copics, after merging the image and the sentiment using Paintshop Pro. I cut it out using a Spellbinder die...
To finish off I cut out a spider using my Cricut and the Doodlecharm cartridge, adding googly eyes.
I hope you like this as much as my Mother in law does. Hope you'll join us for this challenge.
