Cheery Lynn Happy Halloween

I'm posting today with a Halloween card inspired by this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.  I've been having so much fun with all the new Cheery Lynn Halloween dies from the July release!  To make this card I began by cutting three large squares out of white and purple card stock.  I colored the smallest piece orange with distress ink.  After the distress ink dried I cut a circle out of the card stock with one of the small circles from the  Circle Classic Silver Stackers.  I then used the Square Stitching Tool to cut the stitches into the largest and smallest square for added texture.

I then got to work on the fun elements.  I cut the Home Sweet Home haunted house out of a dark gray card stock and backed it with purple for a spooky light inside.  I think this would be really neat to do with neon green behind too.  Then I glued the house down and then glued two Ornamental Gates side by side.  I cut the bottoms of them so they wouldn't be as tall.  

I sponged a little gray ink over a piece of white card stock and then glued it behind the orange layer.  The two bats from the Bat Family die were popped up with dimensional foam adhesive.  Last I added the cauldron from the Crafty Ann Halloween Set 2 and glued the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Happy Halloween Twiggy Wreath die set.
