Crafty Boots - Tag/Invitation

Morning!! time for another DT inspired challenge from Crafty Boots.  The theme this time is for a gift tag or invitation.

I decided to invent a Halloween party and you're all invited!!

 I used Dylusion spray inks in Halloweeny oranges and purples to colour my tag.  My witch is by Stampotique and her hat is a Dylusion stamp from the Love Struck Lucy set - which has circles all over it, so I used the back and coloured it black, I hand drew a rim round the hat before cutting it out.

The little pumpkins are from a cake case (fondant fancies in a Halloween edition called Frankenstein fancies - vivid green!) which happened to be a spare - I found a double on a cake so it wasn't all messy - and I just cut them out from the case.
Hopefully it doesn't look more like a cowboy hat than a witch's hat!!

Added some orange and black ribbons.
Sorry about the rubbish pictures, it has been very gloomy here today!

Lovely tag - ingenious use of cake wrappers ! Wish I thought of that - especially as it was me that ate nearly all of them! Maybe I just get another box?!

Having the same photo problems at this end Helen, but can still get the gist of the lovely fusion of colours on your tag.
