Secret Crafter: Saturday Challenge #29

As soon as I saw this challenge for 'shaped' cards over on the Secret Crafter, I wondered, are any of my cards shaped enough? I quite often cut lumps off the side, 1, to make sure they fit into the envelope after I've added a couple of flowers and 2, to cover up any mistakes, but we won't talk about those! This card was made for a late October Birthday, so I thought orange and red, sort of Autumn colours with a hint of 'witchery' would be perfect for Eloise's fourteenth birthday. I've replaced what I've cut off the card with acetate, so that the orange and red peel-off dots would appear as though they were floating, and look as if the Fairy Witch had cast a spell! The spiders around the card were saved from a fancy dress party, where I went as Grot Bag, green face, black teeth and worts...thankfully, there are no photo's of that!!
