Fly Like the Wind

I thought I'd best get my entry for Through The Purple Haze challenge in early this week. I hope to continue in this weekly marathon until at least Christmas to be in with a chance of their MEGA draw. Blinging things normally has me in a panic if I have to think about it too long. I never know how much is enough to qualify as "Bling it up". I hope this suffices.

The colours that I chose have been determined by the quadruple of colours over at Chromatic Craze.

So the red card base was cut and folded in as a stepper card. Pale blue matting under some orange (with text) DP from the Authentique "Enchanted" pad. Some lime green lace and ribbons to complete the colour range.  The sentiments are digis from TLC and Ginger's house. Bling from stash.

The image panel - that saucy witch is one of the latest from the pen of Rick St Dennis. Katie the Pin-up Witch. Coloured with promarkers in lime green, orange, blue and red. She was then masked off and a paper artsy text stamped in pale blue and a TH web in orange for a background. and edge distressed with shabby shutters DI before matting onto lime green and orange card. The green webs were die cut from green coredinations and glittered up with patina and crystal stickles. These were sandwiched between the card base and the image panel.
A trio of glittery spiders added and finished.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenges at
