Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Spooky

This weeks challenge card is yet again another Halloween card, Im sorry Im having to break my word that there wouldnt be anymore of these cards, but if Im going to enter this challenge Ive got no choice.

The image Im using for this card is another of Mo Manning's fantastic Digi Stamps, this one is called "Perfect Angel" dont you think hes cute, anyway Ive printed it of my computer and coloured him with my copic pens, after which I used a orange inkpad to distress the edges then mounted the image onto a piece of orange pearlescent card. The sentiments are one of the Waltzingmouse stamps I thought it was quite appropriate for this card. Ive mounted it in the same way as the image.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, and for the first layer Ive used a piece of orange pearlescent card and one of two papers from Donna's Extreme Designs Vol.III the Halloween papers. This first one is a large square pattern with bats and sentiments on, the second layer is another of the papers this has loads of spiders webs on, this one I have layered it onto a piece of red pearlescent card, this was layered up onto a piece of orange card which had been passed through a cuttlebug with a pumpkin embossing folder.

I then positioned the mounted image on the second layer and the greeting below it, these were mounted with foam tape. To finish of Ive created two flowers that have been moulded with my ball tool and then Ive put a orange brad through the centres and hung a pumpkin charm from the bottom flower. Before sticking them to the card Ive punched out some black leaves and arranged them in a circle in some silicone glue then popped the flowers on top.
