Trick or Treat - New Pile It On Challenge card

Happy Sunday,
I hope you are all having a great weekend.
Today's card is my DT card for the Pile It On challenge.
Today's challenge is to include punches on your card and we got to work with the super images from Crazed which was great.
As Pile It On is a blog that wants you to combine as many challenges as you can I obvious had to do a little searching before creating my card.
Delightful Sketches started me off with the sketch (I love their sketches and try to do each one)
Tuesday Taggers wanted Punches and/or Die Cuts.
PaperTake Weekly wanted "Fake Anything" so I added faux (aren't I being posh!)stitching to the mat on the front and inside too.
Everybody Art Challenge was looking for something Shabby so I inked the edges of the mats as well.
Daring Cardmakers wanted us to get Shabby too!
Paper Maniac wanted you to use Ribbon.
Belli wanted a Fall or Halloween theme.
Paper Play were looking for tags so I add my sentiment on one.
Treehouse Stamps wanted us to go "Just Around The Corner" and I think my fancy corner punch counts here!
Finally I used the elements from the recipe at my own challenge blog Cooking It Up With Katie which was use 1 image, 2 shapes (I used squares and circles) and 3 paper embellishments which I did with the square accents, punched borders and paper tag.

This fantastic image is from my new favorite artist, Mo Manning, and she is simply called Halloween Witch. She was so wonderful to color and I admit I'm getting hooked on her illustrations and stalk her blog and site every day!
The papers The Paper Studio and the Bat border punch is from EK Success. The Halloween accents are from this weeks Pile It On sponsor Crazed and the sheet is called Halloween Fun. They have a fabulous deal of 5 sheets for $10 going on right now so it's the perfect time to try them out! Plus enter the challenge and you will be in with a chance to win some!
The sentiment sticker is The Paper Studio also. I used an older Emaginations corner punch but sadly that company is no longer around :(

The inside is more dp and a matching "shabby" message mat with an additional rub on sentiment that I aged with more inking.

I hope you'll give Pile It On a try this week and get your punches out and get creating!
Have a great rest of your Sunday.
