A Quirky Spooky Challenge!

Here I am, nearly late for adding my card to the Quirky Craft's Challenge, which has started over on the Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog! (I know coz it's my turn to set the theme) And what are we doing this time round?!? Well, I decided it just has to be...
But of course, I know there's a few of you out there who don't do Halloween, so your challenge for this fortnight will be...
Black, Gold and Glitter!!
Of course we don't mind if you combine the two and make a spooky halloween in black gold and glitter. I've sort of done that! I've made my first centre Step card. Click here to see a tutorial on how to make one. (There are others to chose from! (I had this urge to add huge googly eyes to those boobs!!)
This Challenge is sponsored by Niki from Limited Runs, who has kindly offered 3 digi's to our winner!
Here's my card. Not very spooky at all! My big mistake was using too thinner card, so to compensate I added extra bits in the layering. I also added some gold ink to the edges, which I then covered with sparkly gold embossing powder. I've used Pink Petticoat papers along with a slice from a double sided scrapbook page my eldest daughter, Emma bought back for me, from her trip over to Seattle. (USA really do have so lovely Halloweeny Papers!!)
The digi images and sentiment (which is a set of four and a freebie!) can all be found in Niki's store. I've 3D-ed the pumpkin just to make it pop out a bit and also changed the whole image to a PGN, with clear background, so I could print in over the Pink Petticoat tangerine sky/stars papers, then fixed another image over the top of it. This way I didn't have to cut out all those little twigs, just cut them off . I fixed the bat with a blob of silicone glue. All coloured with ProMarkers.
Nikki also has a Limited Runs Challenge so if you use any of her images for this challenge, go and join in over there too!! (I have!)
