Wicked Best Witches - Happy Halloween card

Happy September 1st!!!  Another day closer to getting cooler.  It has been HELL on earth here in the desert and I will be so glad to get into Fall.  I did a little something different with this card...I used some stickers.  I can't even tell you the last time I used stickers for a project.  I came across these particular Halloween stickers in my stash and thought they'd be perfect to add that little extra something and that is exactly what they did.

I am entering this card in multiple challenges this week:
Bitten By the Bug2 required you to make a new project using your Cricut and a stamp with a fall theme
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday 75 required you to add the colour yellow to your Cricut project
Wacky Wednesday 49 - Halloween at More than Favors - required your project to be Halloween theme
Cricut Cardz Challenge 90 required you to make a card using the card feature from any cartridge, use any colors and for any occassion
Paper Cutz Challenge 106 required you to make a card, layout or project using stars for any occassion and colors

I created this card in the Design Studio. 

I used these Cricut cartridges:
Celebrations for the card base and inside of the card
Happy Hauntings for the witch (which I welded into the circle opening of the card) and the grave stone scene
Paper Doll Dress Up for the tree

I used the Cuttlebug to emboss the tree just to give it some texture.  I also inked the edges and some of the front of the tree.

I inked the grave stones with white, black and some green to give them a more realistic feel.

I added the stickers and stamped Happy Halloween on the front

On the inside I used a stamp from Bug Bites and some more stickers

I had so much fun creating this card and I think I might just be using some more stickers in the future!
