I don't do many Halloween cards but a friend asked me to do one for her hubby - they are both huge animal lovers so this gorgeous little Digi Image from Soft Pencil was ideal - how sweet are the little kitty and mouse in their mummy costumes!

Guess what cardstock the gold is................Yep - Gemstones! The glitter spiders are plastic 'toys' bought from a supermarket (last year!), there's only 2 stuck on the card (top left corner of image and orange one next to sentiment - the 'loose' spiders are just for photographic ambience!). The sentiment is done on the computer.

The image is coloured with a mix of Promarkers and chalks, I've cut out the 'door' and backed onto a piece of starry packaging card. I've used some foam squares around the cut area to give a bit of depth then DST along the image outer edge. I lightly distressed the image piece with my MM distressing tool.

Some challenges I'd like to enter this card for.......
