Halloween sixteen!

Hello everyone
I hope you have had a pleasant Monday.  I have had a brill Monday because I had the day off work!! YIPPEEEEEEE!
So, what could I do with myself all day I hear you ask???  Well naturally I had to fit in some craft now didn't I.  This is a Halloween card I made using Devil Rider Billy from Wendy over at Digital Delights.  Billy was a Freebie Friday image a couple of weeks ago but don't worry if you missed him you can still buy him over at Wendy's store - just click on the link at the top of the page.

The card is based on the sketch over at the Pink Elephant and is shown below:

Billy is coloured using a variety of mediums including; watercolour pencils, metallic pencils and sparkling gel pens.  I also went all over the image using a dark purple chalk so that the white card didn't stand out like a sore thumb. 

The bat image and the sentiment are from the Occasions Double CD from Crafter's Companion as is the purple lantern backing paper.  The black ribbon down the middle of the lantern paper is from my stash and bought from Crafty Ribbons.  The buttons are from my stash (I decided to tie some fibre through them to give them a bit of interest - I won these in some candy from Helen at Ellephantastic) and the scallops that they sit on are from my stash.  The lantern paper sits on some purple mirri card and Billy is mounted on to some purple glitter card - again both from my stash.
So along with the challenge at the Pink Elephant these are the other challenges I am entering this card into:
Lots to do - Make a card
Crafty Cardmakers - Autumn (well Halloween is in the Autumn!)
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Recipe - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons and 3 papers
Pile it On - Ready for Halloween

One Stop Craft - Halloween
Cute Card Thursday - Spook Fest
StampARTic - Boo!
