Crafts Galore Encore October 2015 Challenge

As it's the first of October it's time for a new challenge on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. Thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.
Our theme this month is
"Halloween or Make a Card"
We are being sponsored this month by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering 7 Free Digis to the winner.

This is the card I made for your inspiration.

 I layered an 8"x 8" card blank with green card and a pearlescent purple card. I then drew a haunted house on black card and cut it out. I layered yellow paper behind the cut out windows and fixed the house to the card front.

The image from Bugaboo that I chose is called JJ Calendar Months - October. I coloured her with Copics. The sentiments were printed on the computer.

 I cut out a full moon shape and some bats and added a Spellbinders fence and a couple of hand cut pumpkins. I finished the card with some black glitter on the bats, windows and pumpkins. 
Please now visit the Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the fabulous cards from my wonderfully talented team mates. We look forward to seeing your Halloween or Card projects for October.
I've entered this card into the following challenges:
