A Witch's Dress for Brewing up a Mess!

Here was last week's challenge over at Bitten By the Bug (you should check out the amazing things the other designers did!). The challenge was to use the Yellow Dress (Belle's dress) from Dreams Come True on page 47 of the manual. We were allowed to use it anyway we wanted and this is what I came up with (with some help of a friend and sister BBTB designer DeeDee...I don't have this cart so she so kindly cut the dress for me, thanks DeeDee!!!). You must check out her site as well...Scrappin' with DeeDee...and see all the amazing things she does. She's awe inspiring, especially right now if you are looking for some Halloween inspiration, WOW, you should see all spooky creations she has come up with! My fave is her Halloween Goodie Bag & Card, I love that cat from PDDU!

Also, another great site to check out is SweetArt Paperie a place to get unique themed kits created by Kirsta Norman & her mom Penny Shuberg (both also BBTB designers). They offer some fun and/or gorgeous kits. This project was made with just some of the items in their Halloween kit...can't wait to do some more projects with what I have left...ribbon, chipboard die cuts, stickers, rub-ons, Heidi Grace papers, and those are just some of the items that the kit was full of.

So anyway, like I said here is what I did with the BBTB challenge:

I used Lime Green Stickles & Glossy Accents for the overflowing gooey brew...

Don't you just love this double-sided Heidi Grace paper?? This is the other side of the orange stripes...

Here is the front of the envie which I bordered the top with the same paper using Martha Stewarts awesome Drippy Goo edge punch (which I also used on the bottom the witch's dress):

And here's the back of the envie with those goofy pumpkins!
