Cardmaking Downloads 'Spooky' Competition

If I am totally honest with you, I can be found most days (OK, no secrets.....EVERY day!) over on the Cardmaking Downloads forum, chatting to the BEST bunch of cyber pals you could ever get to meet! OK, so we've not technically 'met' but I feel as if I know these friends as well as, if not better than the friends I see frequently in my daily life. And of course it beats doing the housework ANY day of the week!!!! Samantha Murphy, owner of the site, runs a monthly competition, and today I wanted to share my entry with you.
The theme is 'Spooky!' and you must use items purchased from the site to enter. My card is made using 2 sets by Martha Casadiego, one of the designers who contributes to the site. They are called 'Doodle Cute Halloween Collection' and 'Halloween Papers Collection.' I made a pop out stepper card for my nephew whose birthday also happens to be on Halloween!
 









I decoupaged/layered the images to add depth, and matted the main panel onto black card for definition.
Other than that, I simply added a ribbon, a die-cut BOO! his name and a couple of gems to complete.
All I have to do now is add an insert and it'll be good to go!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
 Crafts & Me challenge #15 ~ Halloween.
Creative Inspirations Challenge #83 ~ Spooky.
Stamp Something challenge ~ 'Halloween Somethings.'
The Creative Cottage ~ challenge #25 'Halloween.'
Charisma Cards Challenge week #41 ~ 'more than 1 fold.'
Thanks for popping by, hope you like it!
