Halloween witch card

Do you ever make a card and there's something about it you don't think is quite right? I created a card yesterday with a great sketch from Delightful Challenges (see below for link) and an absolutely gorgeous free ghost digi from SK Digis but I didn't love my card so thought long and hard before just changing the image and changing the sketch angle and now I think it's really cute, that's all it took lol!! This witch is from Crafts & Me and I doodled the spiderwebs. So my simple advice is next time you don't like your card, just swap a couple of things, it might make all the difference. I'm going to show both cards just so you can see what I mean:



FWAB used:
Kate's corner rhinestone black flourish
