A Quirky Number on Dustin!

Morning!! Well... it's 2.30 in the morning! Just had to make a card using Dustin Pike's Friday Freebie seeing he is kindly sponsoring Quirky Crafts 'Numbers' Challenge, along with The Stamping Boutique this fortnight! Yayyy! (See original post below)
It was such a lovely surprise and all sorted so quickly, we hadn't received his new number digi's before the challenge had started. He said to go ahead and add him anyway. So I grabbed he's latest Freebie, this little wizardry cat and mouse cooking up some spells and quickly (I lie!) made this card...
Pink Petticoat Papers, 'witch' I had backed up on a disc, but would it open!?? No... Anyway, I got there in the end, using what I already had printed out.
I printed the digi over a lilac fluffy cloud paper in Word (see pic below, click to enlarge)

Mo, Twinkletoes2day emailed me the other day to do a tutorial on 'how to print out PNG Digi's over background papers in Word...' as you can see, I'm on the old Word, hubby has the newer one, but I find it muddling! and yes... I do have 739 unopened emails in my box, mostly from blogging people!
I will do one if you think it
might be useful. It's one of those things I do, and then forget how I did it!

Back to the card... I coloured the white clouds with a lilac Promarker, coloured a second Cat and mouse image, cut it out (snipping off the mouse's skinny tail) then fixed it over the other imageusing gel glue.
There's eight layers if you count the spotty bit, which was just that little scrap left over from another halloween card years back(Scrap Girls)
I used my Martha Stewart Cobweb border punch, added 6 purple brads, loads of Stickles Glitter to the edges and the stars on the paper, then added some fish skeletons again.. .one day I will find my bat punch!!
Now, I've sort of followed the Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch, but I've gone and twisted the squares in the middle the other way again. My GDT card is here (I might add it just for fun)
The inside 'Boo!' paper is a freebie. You can download them at Free Digital Scrapbooking HERE (get the spooks with the spiders too!)
The font is a freebie. It's called Spinstee, you can download it HERE where you'll find loads more 'witchy' fonts.
This card is an invite to a Halloween Party. Hope you'll join in with my Numbers challenge over on Quirky Crafts and also have a go at Stella says Sketch on the Bugaboo Challenge blog too! Go now!! That's it!
Thanks for stopping by!! Waaay past my bed time!!! Back later to add some...
