This is the absolutely last Halloween card I will make this year!

I think I'm ready to stop coloring pumpkins and move on to the next holiday. I'm working the closing shift today so I have had all day to work on cards before I have to leave for work. I was able to use this card for 3 challenges and I am quite happy with it. First off the Halloween part comes from Challenge #17 from Paper Craft Star. They are using this Martha Stewart picture as the inspiration. Very festive looking with those Halloween colors. I used the Mojo Monday sketch to help me along and I had seen a tutorial somewhere last week on making stripes which I wanted to try. That's where the Speedy the Cat Challenge fits in.
 They wanted you to use stripes. So I got out my distress inks. Used the 3 orangey colored ones Marmalade, Marigold, Rust Hinge and Black to make my stripes. The pumpkin is from SU. Colored with Copics. The Happy Halloween stamp is one of those dollar stamps at Micheals. I added some black glitter pen to the web and the little bat is a Cuttlebug die.

                                       And now for my card.
