Cast A Spell by Bloobel Stamps - Witchy wonderfulness!

Hello!  Yes, another coloured CAS card from me!  

Oh my this is addictive! Using the CAS style makes it so quick to get an image onto a card!
 
I coloured up this super sweet chibi stamp and I adore those little hobbity feets!

The stamp is
"Cast A Spell" by Bloobel Stamps
        
           
I want to ensure credit goes to the wonderful colourist, Jennifer Dove, who heavily inspired the green skin, and eventually the overall colour scheme of my card!
