Bewitched (the movie, both the original and the remake) is right up there along with all the James Bond movies, Star Trek, Star Wars and the Godfather Trilogy...films everyone always assumes you have seen, but I haven;t ever seen any of them!  Does that make me weird.  Will have to check out Netflix and see if Bewitched is on there, that could be a good Saturday movie for us this week...although I have always loved "Practical Magic" with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.  Daisy has recently discovered Moulin Rouge and has gone a wee bit Nicole Kidman daft at the moment.

Anyway, enough of my rambling, here is my card:

The digi is can be found at Squigglefly, and even better, she is a freebie.  She's called "Framed Witch".  I printed her onto Papermill Direct white linen card.  I then coloured her with Polychromo pencils, and it's a bit tricky to see on the pictures but I picked out all the strands of the web with a clear glitter pen from Sakura.   The patterned papers are First Edition "Desert Bloom" available from Trimcraft.

Here's my Polychromo colour list for this image:
