Abigail Best Witches PaperSweeties Bday/Hallow Card

Have a friend whose birthday is on Halloween so the play on words of "Best Wishes" as "Best Witches" is perfect.

Used some Chevron pattern cardstock that Internet friend Gail of I Like Paper sent me some time ago. Used some Kraft brown cardstock to resemble the floor & baseboards of a room.

Won Paper Sweeties prize and selected stamp/die bundle Abigail and bought the Halloween stamp set.

Used Paper Sweeties stamp/die Abigail paper doll. To make doll sturdy I used die and cut a white cardboard. Stamped & die cut the paper doll and glued the stamped image to the white cardboard. Stamped the Halloween items and fussy cut out to attach to Abigail. Stamped Paper Sweeties sentiment and used Stampin' Up punches for sentiment tag. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on edges.
