Spooky Squigglefly Challenge Card

Today I had lots of fun with a cute Squigglefly digi image called Winnie from artist Jane Beljo.  I popped her onto a stair-step card.  This type of card is easy to make, but lots more fun to embellishment!  There are loads of tutorials on PaperCraft planet and Splitcoast Stampers.
I colored Winnie with Copics and fussy-cut her.  Then I started on the scene of her trick-or-treating adventure.  I had some lovely spider web felt fusion border leftover from previous projects, so I used it on the first, shortest "step".  I added some card candy receive in a swap on my Yahoo Group, Your Scrapbook Place.
Next I wanted to set the scene with some 3D stickers I had in my Halloween stash.  That went into the background onto my third, tallest "step".
Then I took my time deciding where to place Winnie, as she is the focus of my card, and I didn't want to lose her.  From there, I added a couple tombstones and some floating ghosts and my card is complete.
I love to make these stair step cards, as their presentation is so pretty, whether it's in the envelope or standing up on someone's desk.  I hope you like my card.  It's going to be entered into Squigglefly's newest challenge, which is to make a Halloween card.  I think my card qualifies, don't you?? LOL
