Halloween Card

Well here is my one and only Halloween card for this year, I always make one for my Mum as she puts up lovely Halloween decorations etc and generally enjoys the whole thing. So here it is:

I used Promarkers to colour the images in Pastel Yellow, Gold, Pumpkin, Purple, Black, Cool Greys 1, 3 and 5. I used Cuttlebug Typewriter dies to cut the text and also coloured the letters using promarkers. I added a black border cut with a scalloped edge punch, ribbon and a button to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
One Stop - "Halloween"

Sparkles - "Halloween"
