More Halloween Mischief!

Good morning all in blogland! I hope you are fine and well rested after the weekend? We had a busy old time with a nearly new sale, a trip to the opticians, a Halloween birthday party and a trip to the zoo! Fabulous weekend weather wise up here - its just been gorgeous. Befoire I show you my card I took a few pictures of my kiddlypops before they went to their birthday party - I painted their faces for them and they both dressed up as witches:

Don't they look adorable? Is that the right word? Not sure! Anyway - Lucy said she was a good witch - hence the pink colour and Penny said she was a wicked witch - and so the green!

Anyway - onto my card - I've used an image from the scrapbook stamp society Eleanor and Pickles range by Heather Valentin and this one is called magical flight and is available here.

I've coloured the image in promarkers and cut her out and mounted her against a full moon shape mounted on some papers from bearly mine. The greeting is made using Clarity stamp letters and box stamps. The inside of the box is coloured with first and second generation wild plum adirondack ink and the card has been distresses around the edges using black soot DI.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
