   For this card I began by matting and layering printed paper from La Pashe's 'Something for Everyone' CD ROM and dark orange core'dination cardstock onto white card.
   A black strip of core'dinations cardstock was sprayed with iridescent spray and sparkle from Crafter's Companion and fixed down the left hand side of the card.
   The image was printed from Joanna Sheen's 'The House Mouse triple CD collection'. I took a second image and cut out the mice, broom and pumpkin to decoupage the original image. This was then matted and layered onto pale and dark orange core'dinations cardstock before fixing it to the centre of the card with foam pads.
   I made a broom from a wooden cocktail stick, brown paper from packaging and some unravelled string.
This was fixed to the card with Collall all purpose glue. Finally I added a circular sentiment and three card candi.
