Happy Halloween to you All

Happy Halloween everyone, and this is definitely my last Halloween card for this year, this one will go away for next year as Ive sent out all mine to the grandchildren, so it will mean Ive got a head start already. Anyway the reason for this card was to try and enter it in the Penny Black inc Challenge but Ive no idea how to get my uploaded card onto their site its all done with Yahoo Flicker and although Ive tagged it, it still not showing on their site so I thought Id used it for another Challenge instead, and this one is for Crafty Creations Challenge "Halloween" so Ive got a use for it after all.
This is a gorgeous PB image of a cat and his pumpkin and as usual hes been coloured with my copic pens then cut out with the Pumpkin Nestabilitie and Ive used the same die to draw around and create a mount for it out of orange pearlescent card, the sentiment is one from my stash and has had the same treatment given it, I should also say Ive used an orange inkpad to distress the edges of both.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of orange card with my first paper, one of Donna's Bearlymine Halloween designs this one is a all over sentiment paper, and the second and third papers are from the same design set but these have been cut into strips then Ive punched along both edges with my pumpkin border punch from Martha Stewart, then on top of this is a strip of the same orange card but Ive run this through my cuttlebug with a spider embossing folder from Sizzex.
The mounted image was then positioned to the left and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, my final flourish is the three charms stuck down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
