Halloween card

I have created this card for the Polka Doodles challenge which is a sketch.  It was originally going to be a Christmas card, the origins of which are still on my desk.  Somehow it managed to become a Halloween card.  The cat is a grungeboard shape and is just the best halloween cat shape ever.  I painted with metallic black paint and then some stickles over the top, which kind of negated the point of using metallic paint but no matter.  I have also used an M.S. punch to create the 'ribbon' which the brief specified was not to be fabric.  The sentiment comes from a download from the website.  Three brads completed the brief, which aren't straight but hopefully they won't hold that against!

Thanks for stopping by,
