A Card for two Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, well the weather has turned really awful here so I dont expect its going to improve over the bank holiday but you never know, poor hubby has got soaked through a couple of times over the last couple of days but I suppose thats the problem with our weather, our summers are never quite what you expect.
Anyway todays card has been created for Mos "Halloween Hoots" and Cute Card Thursdays "Dieing for a Punch" and Ive used this new Kai image from Mo for this card, Ive coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out with the large Pumpkin Nestabilitie die, then used the die to draw around for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and this also was cut out using the tag die from Spellbinders.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and for the first mount Ive used a orange card and one of four papers from Nitwit Downloads "Eeriesistable" set, the first one is a blue base with several different colour squares over it, the second is a green and grey paper with diamond shapes on, on this Ive used the spider web corner and border punch and stuck it on top of the first mount, the third paper is a blue, orange and white stripped paper and Ive used a bat corner and drippy glue punch on the edges and corner, the fourth paper is a black paper with again blocks of colour over it, on this one Ive used the spider corner and border punches on again this was off set against the third paper.
Ive then positioned my sentiment at the bottom and punched through the holes for the staples which were threaded through and opened at the back, the mounted image was then stuck in the middle, to finish of Ive stuck some buttons around the image, a black cat at the bottom and a pirates flag at the top on the right, and a halloween badge at the top on the left.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
