A Card for the Sugar Bowl and Sugary Sunday Challenges

Good Morning Crafters, well Im really cheesed of with the weather its been pouring with rain all night and it was coming down so heavy it woke me up at 5am and of course there was no way I was going to be able to get back to sleep so I rather gave up trying and before you knew it, it was 7am and time to wake up anyway.
Im a little dissappointed with the pumpkins on this card as the ink wasnt as dark as I thought it was, it was probably the fact that I used a light to take the photo but they did look a lot darker originally than they do now. Anyway this is a Saturated Canary image from Sugar Nellie and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and inked around the edge, then placed it onto a mount of black card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of black card and I have used yet more of the Sweethshoppe papers this set is called "Spider Cider" and the first paper in orange has black spiders on it, the second is a black damask pattern and I have cut a 5" square then used my spider border and corner punch on it. I then placed this on top of the bottom layer.
I then stuck my mounted image towards the left and the overlay die cut is from Memory Box and this stuck down over the mounted image. Then down the right hand side I cut three pumpkins from Die-namics and I also used their stamps on top, I realise now I probably should have used orange card instead of white, but you can just see the patterns on them, sorry about that.
To finish of I have used the left over diecut from the middle of the overlay with a sentiment from my stash and positioned it across the bottom right hand corner. Then to finish of I have used two halloween charms one of the overlay and one on the pumpkin.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
