Good morning folks it's Friday again so it's time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles and I'm hoping this pops up as scheduled as I have an early hairdressers appointment (can't get parked otherwise).
Before I go on to the challenge, I'd like to say a big welcome here to all the new Design Team members especially Joanna who I already know as we're fellow DT members for Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone else.
This week's challenge in common with quite a few others at the moment has a Halloween theme and our Nikky has cooked up a gorgeous download especially for the challenge so don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see the fabulous spooky creations the teamies have made to inspire you.
Here's my spooky and rather cute creation:

I decided on a side step card as I wanted to include quite a few spooky elements. I covered the card with colour block sections of the same paper as I had some bits to use up and being a side step card, it worked out quite well. The papers together with the sentiment came from the Polly Witchydoodles Halloween Download Bundle.
I added the haunted house image and some rather cute and naughty looking pumpkins from the Sundae Of Seasons CD to the side elements.
I printed out Nikky's fabulous Halloween sheet and chose the very cute witch and her little black cat. I coloured the witch with a variety of Promarkers and gave her green hair for a fun look - I did think of giving her a green face (Wicked style) but I thought she looked a bit too cute for that! I cut her out and her little cat whose eyes I coloured with a Promarker and added them to a mat of white card cut out with a Papermania die.

I have a feeling this challenge will be very popular and can't wait to see all your entries.

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