Halloween card

Yes, I know, I know I haven't got people to give them to but couldn't resist making a few more for the first few people that come to the house for Halloween and once they've gone, they've gone.  There are so many gorgeous Halloween images out there I couldn't not have a go!!!

The backing papers I have used for this card I am unsure where they are from.  I'd printed them off last year and never wrote on the back who they belonged to so I apologise to the designer.  I have inked the edges with Tim Holtz's Black Soot distress ink pad for the two main pieces of paper.  The two smaller pieces I tore, scrunched and then inked the edges and also the crinkled lines with Black Soot distress ink pad to highlight the distressing.  The image is of a gorgeous little wizard and is from Just Inklined.  I have coloured him with Promarkers and cut him out with a Spellbinders die and inked the background/edges with Black Soot.  The card is finished off with a Halloween sticker from Jolee's Boutique that I won in some candy last year and I used some peel-offs onto some silver mirri card for the word BOO.
