Gruffies Challenge - October 2014 - Anything goes with the option of Halloween/Halloween colours

 It is that time of the month for me to show you my Gruffies and Guests Challenge card for October 2014.  The challenge this month is "anything goes with the option of Halloween/Halloween colours".
For my card I have used the Joanna Sheen House Mouse triple CD and used these cute little mice playing with a pumpkin and pretending to be witches or wizards.  Aren't they cute?

I have decoupaged up the image and used my snapshot tool to cut out two each of the little circular toppers and two sentiments.  The decoupage topper, circle toppers, sentiments and backing paper that came from the CD have all been distressed with Tim Holtz's distressing tool and I have gone around the edge with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink.

I have finished this spooky Halloween card off with some spider's web ribbon and a spider with googly eyes cut with my Cricut.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Delighted you are sharing your project & creativity at 613 Ave C Kym! I love the soft colors and the very soft coloring technique you have used. I also really like the punched out repetition of the characters - quite creative!
