Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Celebrate Autumn 6x6 Paper Pack.




I chose a piece of grid pattern paper from Celebrate Autumn 6x6 Paper Pack , cut it into 4×5.25 inch and distressed the top area using distress inks Carved Pumpkin, Black Soot, and Wild Honey. I diecut a black card stock using Halloween Hills Dies and Halloween Set Dies from Impression Obsesstion. 


Before I adhered Hill Diecut to the background, I inked the lower part of the panel with Distress Inks Peacock Feather and Milled Lavender.



I wanted to add a little bit of fun details so I cut another piece of Halloween Hills Dies out of white card stock, colored small items using Copic markers and adhered them to the black silhouette cut. 



Sentiment from Halloween Pals was heat embossed in white and I trimmed it into a tag and added Natural Twine Ribbon to it. 
 I embellished my card  by adding some 4mm Charcoal, and orange colored sequins



So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting

Marge, this is my kind of Halloween card; not too spooky and delightful. The Halloween Hills die cut is awesome and I love it against the grid paper. The "lady" on the broom and bats are perfect additions. You've created a striking scene on this card, Marge! Hugs!

LOVE this, Marge! Such a great idea to take a patterned paper piece and make it your own by doing some blending to make a super cool dusk sky... that coupled with the silhouette imagery is just PERFECT!!
