What's the Story?

I actually worked on a couple of pastels projects today, but I spent most of my time working on these cards, which will serve as invitations to our annual Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest Party.

I showed Bill different designs and he chose this one because of the "story" in the main image.

Which brings me to the title of the post. You see, Bill thinks the story is easy to spot. I'm not so sure. So what do you think? Can you tell what the "story" is behind this stamped vignette? You might be able to see it better in the next photo.

The first person who gets the right story will get a copy of this card in the mail. I know -- it's not a particularly glamorous prize, but at least it's a practical one -- you'll be able to send it on to someone else this Halloween.
So give it a shot and post a comment with your guess about the "story".

Oh, and if you want to re-create the card on your own, the main image uses the Haunting Halloween and Bitty Boos Too stamp sets. The sentiment is also from Haunting Halloween and the ghostly eyes are from Carved and Candlelit. I used the following card stock: pumpkin pie, elegant eggplant, naturals ivory; and the following inks: Basic Gray, elegant eggplant, pumpkin pie, old olive, more mustard, summer sun, basic black, and versamark. I also used an aquapainter. It was a fun card to make, but I really hope the recipients "get it".

I'm hoping the former prince got his revenge and toasted the witch who switched him! Very cute card as always!

Yep, I think she turned the prince into a frog and he snuck up behind her and somehow pushed her into her own cauldron. I'm not sure why he's smiling though because he thought he would be turned back into a prince after the witch's demise, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Maybe he's just spotted a very cute lady frog!

I think.. The Witch LOVED the Frog! Made up a potion and went in Head first! As we all do when it comes to love.. And they went trick or treating together after!
LOL Just a twist on things!
I really enjoy your Blog!

Well, I think the witch was chasing the cute little frog around to add him to her brew, when she tripped an oops fell into it herself. The frog is thinking it's pretty funny!
