Sweet Pea Stamps Progressive Challenge Part 1 - Anything goes

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook Group.  If you enter Part 1 of the challenge you get a free image to use for the second part of the challenge.  You can still enter Part 2 without entering Part 1 but you would need to purchase the image that everyone is using from Sweet Pea Stamps.
For my Halloween card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Conie Fong called "Priscilla".  She is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp.  I have coloured my image in with my Promarkers and fussy cut around the edge.

For the trees background I used a Memory Box stencil called "Garden Birch Trees".  I secured the stencil and then used Dutch Doobadoo stencil paste through it, took the stencil off, sprinkled over some black glitter and left to dry.

The backing papers and card are from my stash.

I have finished the card off with some buttons, twin, scrunched up bat ribbon, sentiment from the computer, Tim Holtz Bigz die-cut flower (6 layers cut from a book and coloured with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot distress ink and held together with a brad) and some Martha Stewart punched out bats.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
