Best Witches!

Hi!  It's Sunday and the clocks went back this morning, only we forgot and we didn't get our sleep in!  I feel totally robbed.  We turned up to work early too!  

The guests came for lunch on the boat today and since it was a wintery day and I had 8 egg yolks in the fridge from the pavlovas I made last week I decided to try out a bread and butter pudding recipe that I got from another yacht chef.  Yum!

This week the challenge at Tiddly Inks was to make a card using the following colours...

It's a tough one right?  I wasn't going to enter as I didn't think I could make a card without putting any red on it!  But I decided to give it a go anyway...  

Here's what I came up with:

This image is called Higgelty. The papers I have used are from My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon.  The charm is from The Ribbon Girl as is the ribbon.  The swirly bling is from Prima.  I have coloured Higgelty with copics (see details below).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks #70: Silvery Blues
The Secret Crafter #158: Spooky or Whimsical 
Glitter Geeks #21: Ghosts and Ghouls, Spiders and Spooks
Polka Doodles #43: Mystical and Magical

These are the copics I used:

Have a lovely Sunday evening!

You did amazing. You nailed the color challenge. This is by far the cutest halloween card that I've seen. I wish I could color like you with copics.
Great Job.
