Wicked Witch of the West and her Raven

At Gingersnap Creations for the month of October, it's a "Go Poe" theme and this week's challenge is all about Ravens (#GC123). You can't celebrate Edgar Allen Poe without Ravens! There's a prize too by Alpha Stamps. Come visit to see the fang-tastic design team entries, see interesting tutorials or just to poke around.

Using paper by Graphics45 Magic of Oz collection from the Flying Unicorn store, I cut out circles and folded them to make rosettes. The background are two layers of the Magic of Oz papers. Some sequin trim, Black  and Lime Stickle accents, both add the magical sparkle. The chipboard Raven  is from the mysterious bird cutouts from Retro Cafe Art. Some watercolor highlights give some added depth to the rosettes. With that my Wicked Witch of the West card was all done!

Hope you will have fun being wicked this week.
Sincerely yours, gerri
