Happy Halloween

I made this card for myself. Why shouldn't I have a Halloween card?

I started with two Sassy Studio Designs--Masked Maurauder and Masked Warrior. They were colored w/Copics. Next I cut and folded the paper for a basic side step card. I cut the castle and the picket fence w/the Cricut then distressed both with an emery board and Tim Holtz distress ink. I also added some extra texture to the castle by crushing it up in my palm, inking more and spritzing with water. Both came from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I made the sentiment up and cut it with a Spellbinders die the that I won from Regan at Charmed Stamping on her birthday blog candy give away. Thanks R! I embossed it and added brads. I cut the moon from glitter paper with my Martha Stewart circle cutter. The web border was made with her web punch around the page. I couldn't resist added bling and Stickles.
