See how green you can go,sprinkle 3 buttons or brads and a dash of ribbon, a special something 'recycled' This is my card, I used the witch Dottie image from the Halloween Collection and suspended her on a recycled string spiderweb,she is also printed on a brown paper bag and I paper pieced her in all her coloured glory onto it.

I would like you to make a card or something using a Download from Charmed Cards and crafts...And also....... include something that can be removed,it could be a tag,bookmark,notelets etc. This card I used my own design
It is folded so when it opens out
It has pockets to put money or gift vouchers in.
I used images from The Christmas Collection over on Charmed cards,the lovely sentiments are 'lil messages' and the lovely patchwork paper is by The English paper company. I used my Cropadile to add the eyelets which secure the pockets,this can also be used to attach ribbon or tags to to close the card.

For the straw I again used the Halloween downloads,this time using the individual images and re-sizing them on word,then i laminated them and attached to straws,which i picked the co-ordinating colours to match the images
