One Card three Challenges

Good Morning Ladies, though to say its a good day is a bit much as the weather here is absolutely awful, its pouring of rain, and its heavy and the wind is blowing like a gale, so Im really looking forward to starting our holiday tomorrow, so this is my last card post for just over a week though there will be a scheduled one that will come up Monday week, its my DT card for Cards For Men, I do so hope you are taking part it this fortnights challenges, like most of the challenges at the moment is titled Autumn.
Before I start on todays card I want to tell you that I was awarded a top three Award from Crafters Companion this week for this entry and Im thrilled and you can see Ive even got a gorgeous blinkie to show for it.
Anyway this card is in the catagory and Im going to enter it into three challenges and they are Just Magnolia's "Anything goes" Stampin for the Weekends "Autumn Inspiration" and Totally Papercrafts "The Great Outdoors" and I thought this Tilda with her cauldron was a real lovely Halloween card to send to one of my grandchildren so Ive stamped and masked her, then coloured her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her on some red card, the sentiment is one from my stash thats got the same treatment.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of red card and one of three papers from the Nitwit Halloween Downloads, this first one is an all over text pattern, the second is a yellow/orange paper with bats on that Ive cut into a square and used my spiderweb all around border punches from Martha Stewart on, the third paper is a strip of black paper with stars and a huge moon on, Ive used the pumpkin punch on the two edges of this one and stuck it across the middle.
On top of this I have positioned my mounted image and my sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have stuck three Halloween charms down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
