Vintage Halloween

This is only my second time using a vintage image. I really like how this one turned out!

I found this image free on Vintage Holiday Crafts and built my card around it.

I used the Boo Cuttlebug folder and used orange chalk to highlight.  I used embossing power  for the first time on the Best Witches stamp  from Pink by Design. (I finally cut open my heat gun after buying it months ago!!) 
The broom I just found in the bottom of my craft bin, I used black ink to make it dark to match the brooms on the image. I used Stretch Your Imagination for the tag.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Cuttlebug Challenge Create a card, layout, altered item, home decor piece, or project of your choosing, with a NOSTALGIC THEME, being sure to use the Cuttlebug. You can use a Cricut cut, an image from Google search, an antique photograph image, some other old fashioned theme, or, of course, a piece from our sponsor, Crafty Secrets!
