So I printed out the image and cut the image out using the stitch die from My favorite things.. I wanted to do that so I could draw a circle around the image to look like the moon.. in person it's a moon look with grays and light yellow, but on the computer it just looks white.. I used copics to color the image and went over parts of her with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I used Recollection Halloween papers. I stamped the sentiment (??) and heat embossed. I added some banners and die cut some Taylored Expressions spiders out of glitter paper.

This is my card and I am using Scarlette Cupcake.. I colored her with copics. I then went over the frosting with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I had a friend over and she is a Stampin up distributor and she brought some of her paper and dies.. She loves to use my stamps .. cause they are different than hers..  So I borrowed this awesome die from her to cut Scarlette out.. I think I need to get this set. There are quite a few sizes in the set.. I then found this fun designer paper that kinda matched the die shape.. I wanted a color behind her so I adhered the die cut image to the prink and then using my trimmer I cut around it. I saved some of the scraps and stamped the sentiment from Simon says and Reverse confetti. I used Tech. Tues. banner die. I finished with some Pretty Pink Posh jewels.
