MFTeaser - Hello, My Pretty

Welcome to day 6 of MFT previews and it's Pure Innocence day, so you know the posts will be filled with cuteness!!!

I used the very seasonally appropriate Pure Innocence-Little Witch for my card today. When I look at this image it takes me back to grade 5, Mrs. Marson's class. It was fall and we had to learn a tongue twister, and there was a contest to see who could say it the fastest and repeat it the most without making a mistake. I think it was a lesson on homonyms or something...but that doesn't really matter...what does is that I won! Ha! Ha!! I never said I wasn't competitive! Let's see how you make out...
"Which witch is watching the witch watcher watch the wicked witch wind her wrist watch?"
Oh, the funny things we remember from school, eh?  :-)

Anywho...on to my card. I used the MFT Wednesday stamp club sketch #32 for the layout along with some fun burlap that I picked up at Archiver's when I had a little shopping trip with Lisa last week {waves}.

The witch is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and then I paper pieced her hat and dress, but coloured the rest with copics. I gave her sparkly tights thanks to a couple of Spica glitter pens. The open zig zag border die-namic seemed like a perfect fit with this image and the papers are from Fancy Pants' October 31st pack. 

And the inside...super simple but effective.

Your title made me think of the line, "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too". Oh how I loved that movie! Your little witch is far too cute to be watching the witch watcher watch the wicked witch wind her wrist watch! Sweet sweet card! :)

Oh my that tongue twister is a good one.

I learned a few picking strawberris in the summer that were not so nice if you said them wrong. I practice hard to get them right.
