Look to the Western Sky!

I was so excited to see that Baby Bud Designs started a challenge! I love these wee ones! I hope the artist Mary Anne Wainright doesn't mind but I added a 'costume' to one of her images. Little Miss Millie here is going for the "Wicked" look (one of my most favorite soundtracks ever!).

Going Green
~Base card PaperTrey Ink
~Layer of purple cardstock
~Layer of crumpled and sanded Black/Orange Core'dinations Hocus Pocus; wrapped with random layers of purple metallic floss (Transfer of Crap from Sista Gail)
~Digital image by Baby Bud Designs - This is Little Miss Millie - for Halloween she has donned a witch's hat from Dragon Doodles Studios and she borrowed a pair of shoes from a freebie site that I can't name at the moment; her face and dress were colored using Copics; her hair was base colored with Copics then highlighted with Stickles Black Diamond
~Witch hat colored with Copics, band topped with Stickles Frosted Lace, Moon topped with Stickles Yellow
~The sentiment is also digital, punched using Stampin'Up Tag Punch, smudged with purple ink and dotted with Copic orange
~A wad of ribbon completes Little Miss Millie's ensemble (although for tonight you can just call her Elphaba)

Really Reasonable Ribbon - fall theme with ribbon
Paper Sundaes - change in season
Aly's Sunday - Halloween
Cupcake Craft - Scary creatures (Please don't tell Little Miss Mille she's not all that scary)

Here's to falling asleep listening to Christin Chenowith.
