Pecan Nut Halloween Witch

Over on the Nutshells blog I discovered that they are starting Nutty Nutshells Wednesdays and they will be issuing a challenge twice a month.  For their first challenge, you had to make a Halloween card and use this adorable freebie digi image "Pecan Nut Halloween Witch".
I sewed the buttons on the ribbon with DMC floss and the stitching on the two panels is all done by hand with the same DMC floss using a back stitch ~ took a lot more time than I anticipated, but I do like how it looks.  The sewn panels as well as the image are raised on dimensionals.

In addition to the Nutcrafters challenge, this card is also for the following challenges:
ABC - F is for flying
Banana Split Sunday (2 Red Banana's) - Purple, Black and Orange
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 papers
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Buttons and Stitching
Cute Card Thursday - "Spookfest"
Digital Tuesdays - Halloween
Kraftin Kimmie - "Buttons, Buttons"
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch - sketch
Paper Play - Use favorite embellishment (ribbon is up there)
Papertake - "The Dark Side" - Halloween
Pile it On - Halloween
TCP Tuesday - Use Buttons
