LSC #92 Halloween Theme or Color combo

Hi my friends!  So, we are entering into a new challenge, and right around the corner is Halloween. Now I will be completely honest and say that I am really not into Halloween.  Never really was that big into it as a kid either.  But, I did have some fun putting together this card for this challenge.

I used the cute set Spooktacular.  I also used So Thankful for one of the smaller pumpkins.  I started out by die cutting a piece of white card stock and a piece of vellum from one of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies, and then I inked up my background with distress inks - Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, and Chipped Sapphire.  Once I was satisfied with my background, I started working on my images.  I stamped the kitty cat, pumpkin, the moon and a bat all from the Spooktacular set.  I colored all of my images with Copic Markers except for the bat - I just used the die to cut him out of black card stock from my stash.  Once I was done with all of my images, I cut out a border for them to sit on out of black card stock.  I adhered my vellum onto my inked back ground to "mute" it just a bit, and then started adding all of my images on top.  I stamped my sentiment out in Staz On ink as this is a good ink for vellum.  You can't tell in the picture, but I added some shimmer using my Wink of Stella clear brush marker on the witches hat, the small pumpkin and the moon.  
Then, I started to put my card together.  I die cut some pattern paper from a Doodlebug 6x6 pad, and added that straight down onto my Smoke Card base, and then I put foam adhesive on my main panel and adhered it to my pattern paper.  Turned out cute I think, and I feel I can still give this card to a friend!
