Monday Funday #5 - Halloween challenge

Happy Halloween!  It's another Monday Funday at TGF's Farm Fresh Challenge blog and we are, of course, celebrating Halloween!  Are you a creeper or too cute to spook? 
The base of this card is Old Olive with layers of sparkling spider web by Reminisce and Basic Black.  The grave yard is made by tearing brown cardstock to look like rough dirt.  The tombstones are curved by sliding a piece of cardstock into a curved punch to round the top.  The other stone is a cuttlebug die and emboss set.  The moon is punched with a circle in Very Vanilla, then embossed with Swiss Dots.  The clouds are torn vellum.  The gate is punched with Martha Stewarts spooky fence.  The sidewalk is drawn in with a gel pen.  The image is TGF's Hallo Bride digi colored with copic markers.  I also printed it in vellum, coloring some highlights on the back of the vellum, before tearing around the image to give it a ghostly glow.  The sentiment is printed using Twilight font, punched with a wide oval, and mounted on the decorative label punch.  I added a decorative staples on the corners.
Head on over to the FFC blog and play along!  Thanks for looking!  April
