Midway Reminder - Halloween at Totally Tilda

Hello peeps,
Well I just popped in to remind you that you have about a week left to submit your entries for our latest challenge at Totally Tilda.
Don't forget the challenge this time is:
Now you know that I always show you a sneaky peek of my card the day the challenge goes live don't you?  So today is the day I can show you the whole thing!  Bet you're excited now aren't you?? LOL
Just kidding, I'm not really that big headed, honest.  So here you go then, my card for this challenge:
So, the backing paper and wordy DP down the left hand side is from a Summer Driggs collection called Happy Halloween.  My image is called Broom Tilda (don't you just love that name??), colouried with promarkers.  I placed her on one of Susie's fabby die cuts - Oh yes, I said I'd let you all know when Die Cut Dreams was up and running again didn't I?? Well, not long to wait now - the shop will re-open in early November - watch this space for more information!!
Right, back to me card.......
The "Boo" was made from three chipboard letters which were purple - I stamped them all over with black ink and then used clear embossing powder to make them shiny.  There are three coats of embossing powder and they really feel like glass - you'd never know they were chipboard. Hopefully you can see them better in the piccy below.
Now, my spiders, pumpkins, lickle cat, bats and Happy Halloween banner are from a Cuttlebug Folder called creepy crawlies.  I don't have it personally but a dear sweet friend sent me some for my card. (thanks mummy - love ya!!)
The two ticket sentiments are from the lovely Lynne at Sentiments 4 You.
The gorgeous orange batty ribbon and the three pieces of orange spider's web ribbon are - of course - from Crafty Ribbons and you can see their full range of fabulous Halloween Ribbons and buttons here.
So there you have it peeps, my Halloween Tilda card.  Hope you get time to join in the current challenge - click here for all the details.
