Halloween Card

So this is the first ever Halloween card I've made and also the first ever blog challenge card I've made.  
I was inspired to give it a go as part of the challenge on the Polka Doodles blog which you can find details of here: Polka Doodles Challenge
I covered my base card with a piece of cobweb paper, then printed the sentiment, the gravestones and bats from the Polka Doodles blog.  I used chipped sapphire and dusky concorde distress inks to colour the background of the gravestones and the sentiment, adding yellow for the moon.  I cut the bats out and added glossy accents to highlight.
