Day 1 of 12 Days of Christmas

Over at Simply Betty Challenges, they are doing the 12 Days of Christmas...with a Twist! lol
Day 1 challenge was to use any Simply Betty Stamps Halloween image and create a Christmas card with it.
Now, to be honest, I came close to passing on this challenge, thinking it would be too difficult, but I brainstormed a bit, and this is what I came up with.
I coloured Witch Betty in red and Green, used a snow marker and actual cocoa to try and make it look like she was brewing hot chocolate in her cauldron and then gave her a big old candycane as a stir stick. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp, but it was way too big for the card, so I typed it out on my computer. Papers are Cocoa by Upsydaisy and Royal Bliss by Sassafrass Lass, and a few little Bella Baubles finished it off.
Can't wait for Day 2 Challenge!
