Renaissance Witch on her Journey, Oh My!

This Dreamy Halloween Lady
is cut from the A Child's Year Cartridge.  I was looking for a bit more Renaissance and less spooky feel for this card.  To achieve that effect, I altered the "witch" by removing the broom and making her hat more of a Renaissance type than a witch type.  (I love welding and  altering shapes from the cartridges!)  She is cut from CTMH black cardstock.

All other cardstock and paper is from the Dream Pop package. The orange patterned strip was inked around the edges with Bubblegum Pink.

I have lots of tulle left over from Katie's recent wedding; so I colored some of it, along with some white satin ribbon, with my orange stamp pad.  I used the orange tulle to embellish with some pink and orange embroidery floss.  The little pink gems are from CTMH.  The pink ribbon with the white swirl pattern was in my 'bag-o-ribbons';  I'm not sure where I got it.

When the card was finished, it had a different look than I had at first envisioned.  But then again, most of my creations do.  I seem to take twists and turns as I'm going along.  I guess it's because many times life is about the journey and not the end result.  Since art imitates life, and vise versa, I guess that makes sense!

I'm excited to give this to my favorite little lady on her big Trick or Treat Night when I'm sure she'll have an adventurous journey, but first it's going off to Bitten by the Bug 2 for the Trick or Treat Halloween Challenge!
