Halloween Card

I wanted to share a Halloween card I made this morning.  I combined a lot of different techniques and tools in this card, so I hope you'll like it!  The paper I used is Purple Fog from the Frightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle and Kioshi from Basic Grey.  I made this card with a couple of challenges in mind, which shaped the direction the card would go.  For the Magna-liscious Highlites Challenge, we were to create a fall project using a Magnolia stamp and a paper bag in some way.  I chose to use the So Spooky Tilda and I think she is adorable!  I used Copics to color her.  I used a black paper bag as a mat and I ran in through the Cuttlebug with the Scrollworks folder.  I love how deep the embossing is on the paper bag and it ran through so smoothly!  I also used the black paper bag to punch out the bats using the Martha Stewart bat punch on the inside of the card.  I really like the look this created!  I then used Spellbinders Scalloped ovals to highlight the image of my card.  The iron gate is from the October 31st cricut cartridge and I love using this one with my Tilda images!  The flowers are from Dazzlers and I love the color of them.  The sketch is from the Pixie Cottage challenge and I thought it worked well with this card.  The  black mesh trim and the bat trim are both from Great Impressions RS Inc.  Spellbinders Labels 4 was used to highlight the sentiment on the inside of the card, which is from Hero Arts.

Here is  a close-up of So Spooky Tilda:  You can really see how well the paper bag embossed in the Cuttlebug!

And finally, here is the inside of the card.  I hope you like it!
