I ♥ Promarkers Challenge 86 - Spooky!

Sorry I'm late with this week's challenge at I ♥ Promarkers, I just haven't had time to think let alone blog and craft this last week. I've had a few personal problems which thankfully are now sorted, then illness. Everything's ok now, so I'm left playing catch-up.
Our challenge this week is SPOOKY. I love making Halloween cards, but never know what to do with them after, so I try to keep it down to only making one a year.
We are being sponsored by the fabulous Joanna Sheen, with the winner getting a £10 gift voucher to spend in her online shop.

For my card I've used a Pollycraft image called Luna Bitterfrost - Happy Haunting, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I've coloured the white background with a grey Promarker, die cut the image with Go Create Frilly 2 large frame, then doodled round the edges with a black fine liner Promarker.
The dps are MME Boo to You and Martha Stewart Creepy Face. I cut around a part of a spider's web from a sheet of the dp. The bat is a die cut from the Boo to You collection. The sentiment and cat's face are digis, which unfortunately I'm not sure where I got them, I've coloured the backgrounds on both with Promarkers. The Halloween wording embellishment was a gift from a friend. I added some faux stitching, some in black and some in white. Other items used are Martha Stewart punches - a spooky gate and goo, Prima orange pearls, and Glossy Accents on pumpkin eyes and mouth, and cat's, bat's and spider's eyes. Cardstock is orange 6 x 6" Bazzill.
