Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Wicked Musing

Good Morning and welcome to my very last day of my 30s! Yep I turn the big 4-0 tomorrow, so what better way to celebrate than with my favourite holiday season - Hallowe'en. A few months early I know, but I love all things witchy and ghoulie and creepy, so when we were asked to choose an image from the Witch/Spooky/Gothic section of Ching-Chou's images, I knew I had to make a Hallowe'en card!

I used the gorgeous Wicked Musing and kept to a darker colour palette. I added some spiders, bats and black cats paper along with a William Shakespeare quote from MacBeth from the witches boiling up their potion! Hope you like her!

This card is also for
