Polka Doodles #39: Favourite Card Shape

Hello, hello, hello!!! It's FRIDAY.... at last, so brace yourself for another fortnight of challenges, friends! A new theme starts today and it's a super easy one: your "Favourite Card Shape". It can be rectangle, square, round or one of the many fancy-fold cards. All you have to do is make a project using your Favourite Card Shape.

My favourite card shape is rectangular ... the regular A2 rectangular. Boriiiiiing. I hear you sigh. But hear me out. These cards are fuss free, quick to put together and versatile - portrait, landscape, top-folding, side-folding and, if I'm feeling particularly lazy, no-folding postcard. :)

For today's card, I made a top-folding landscape card. My card features images and papers from the Witchie Witchie CD, which is fabulously ghoulish and perfect for fun Halloween projects. The papers and sentiment are also from the same CD. Loads of cute stuff in there for the fainthearted.

Here's a closer look at the image. She's called Witch Wendie and I coloured the witch with Faber-Castell polychromos.  This card is for a young person, so I kept the colouring loose and fun. Also, I have it good authority that she'll be dressed exactly like this.... because I helped her mummy make the costume. What fun!!!  Witch Wendie and is also available as a separate download digi.
