First DT Post!

One thing I have always wanted to do, but been hesitant to do, was get onto one of the many design teams around.  I have applied a few times in the past, but nothing came of it.  Well, that has all changed!  I have been invited to join the design team over at Creatalicious Challanges and I'm thrilled.
Well this first challenge has definitely been that, A CHALLENGE!  The challenge for October is Halloween.  I have never done anything Halloween related in my whole life.  I have no images, or anything in my stash remotely spooky or appropriate.  "No worries!" I say, "I'm off to a craft show tomorrow and will be able to pick up some stuff".  Not a single thing was there.  If you were looking for Christmas stuff, you were laughing.  So, I managed to find some purple paper, a spooky house chippy and a gate die that would adapt.
Now to make something.  However, I only have that night to make my creation.  I'm off to sunny Queensland (bring on the warmth and sun!) the next day and have to upload it before I go.  Needless to say, it was  a bit of a late night, but I enjoyed myself in the process.  This is what I came up with.
This challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and the prize is 4 digi images for the winner to choose!
I look forward to seeing what you all create!  I'm now have the painful task of rationalising which copics I will pack 8(.  Have fun!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Southern Girls Challenge - Ribbon
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - Pins
Card Makin Mamas - Halloween or spooky
Dream Valley Challenges - Halloween
