Here lies yet another halloween send.  
This one  I started with white card stock and I clear embossed the skull using Stampers Anonymous Rest in Peace.  Using resist technique -- Over this, I blended Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, and Seedless Preserves.  The Boo was a gift of letter stickers from Scrapbook.  I framed it with black cs and then all on a purple cs base.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may:

Under Your Spell

Lining up my sends for Halloween. 

For this card, I started with textured cs from Core'dinations.  It has a great weave texture to feel.   The printed cs is from Abandoned JHoltz Idea-ology.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle stamped on black cs with white embossing powder then cut with a double stitched die from My Favorite Things.  The bottom die cut is from Sizzix Thinlit Frightful Things and then I coated it with Wink of Stella so it sparkles on an angle.  Last touch, adding that acrylic dot made in my oven by melting a plastic bead.
All then added to a black cs base.

Shine Bright

Anything Goes 

For my card, I am using the image, "Dragobiscus Flower Pot Hatchling" and I used both colored pencils and markers on the image and highlighted the dragon with a couple of coats of 'Wink of Stella' to make the baby dragon really shine.  I cut the image out and a pale lavender frame with a set of stitched oval dies from MFTs.  The dark pink front panel was embossed with a swiss dot folder by cuttlebug.  The pink plaid paper is from Core'dinations.  .  All mounted onto a pink side fold cs base.  I added different-sized sequins to the top corners.
