I've done my first Halloween card this year at last! I found quite a few challenges too that it fits, which wasn't too hard as most challenge sites are 'doing' Halloween' at the mo.

The image is by Michelle Perkett who has a Halloween challenge going on at the mo here. You can find a freebie Michelle Perkett image on CDAC if you're lucky. She also has an Etsy store, or you can buy them at Bunny Zoes Crafts. The image I've used is called Candy the sweet Halloween Witch.

 I've coloured Candy with Promarkers, cut her out and added orange Stickles. The dp is My Minds Eye - Boo To You, and the purple paper is DCWV Stack 7. The moon with the bats is part of a digi image I found and I've added black Stickles to the bats. The witch in the moon, spider web and sentiment stamps are all from Technique Tuesday - Trick or Treat, stamped with black Versafine. The headstone, skull and stars are all die cuts from Boo To You. I've added 2 black gems to the skull's eyes, and doodled on the stars with a black Fineliner pen.

The fence is a Martha Stewart punch, to which I've added some black gems. The cat is from a Bazzill Basics Just the Edge strip. Cardstock is 6 x 6" black Bazzill.

Onto the challenges I'm entering my card into:

MAWTT Challenge 69 - Use Promarkers/Anything Goes. Being sponsored by Letraset
Creative Craft Challenge - Trick or Treat
Other Lovelies Thoughtful Thursday 0031 - H (for Halloween or Haunted)
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - Green, purple and orange
Pile It On Challenge 41 - Kid themed Halloween
