Too cute to spook

Olo!

Soooo... I got some new Sugar Nellie stamps in the mail recently and I've just been itchin' to ink them up. But time and again that has kept getting put off for other things so they had to sit and wait, it was torture I tell ya!
Well yesterday I finally had time to dive in to them and sweet Delia here was really speaking to me. The shape of her dress kinda reminded me of a pumpkin so I ran with that idea and decided that with a bit of tweaking she would make for a super cute trick or treator. All I did was wipe away the large flowers on her skirt with a baby wipe before stamping and then drew the circles back in, but this time turned them into a crazy jack o'lantern print. Now she reminds me of a little girl who couldn't decide if she wanted to be a witch or a butterfly for Halloween so she went with both costumes at once, LOL! ;)
There is actually quite a lot of sparkle added to her wings and costume but as always the picture just doesn't want to pick it up... sigh. But one thing you can't miss are all those bright Doodlebug colors, heeheehee... love 'em! Overall I think it is pretty obvious that I was having a lot of fun with this card, which is all that matters in the end. :)

ETA... this week's Flutter By challenge is to use the colors; black, purple, orange, and green on your card so how perfect is that?! Looks like I'll be poppin' this card over there to play along!

Ok, time for me to go get ready for the day.
