New Challenge #56 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hello everyone,
Well life certainly hasn't calm down yet.
But the family has nearly 
moved into their own house, 
but its been a week of cleaning, 
decorating and moving in.
Then I've got to do all the 
cleaning in my house 
when I get a spare minute.
I had to find some spare time 
(who needs sleep) 
to do this weeks card.

So this weeks Theme at Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Add Some Black 

Our sponsors this week are 
Crafty sentiments:-
who are offering 3 digis from their store 

Sassy Studios:- 
who are offering 4 images from their store 

Inky impressions:-
who are offering a $10 gift certificate for their store

For my project this week I used the 
Grim Reaper digi stamp 
from Sassy Studios (one of our sponsors)

To begin with I tri-folded an A4 
Plain Red Card (stash), 
then cut a Square on the right hand side 
and folded it in a triangle. 
Then using a Pearl Black Card (Ross Paper), 
I backed all the facing edges. 
I then hand cut 'Tombstones' of 
different sizes from some 
Pearl Grey Card (stash).

I coloured the Digi Image in using my Promarker Pens.
And to highlight the folds in her Cape 
I used Holographic Embossing Powder 
And for the handle of her Scythe 
I used Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder 

Then I cut out the Image and 
backed it onto the large 'Tombstone' on the left.
I printed off my 'Trick or Treat' sentiment 
and coloured that in as well with my Promarkers,
then cut it out as a small 'Tombstone'.

For the trim at the front of the card,
I used a Tonic Delicate Lattice Punch,
on Red Card.
And trimmed it up with a Plain Black Satin 
10mm Ribbon (stash)

And to finish off, 
I added some Ghosts and Bats
and the 'Spooky' words,
(Halloween Fun Stickers, Craft Planet).

As you can see when the corner comes down,
a ghost gives you a surprise.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges :-
