It's Halloween at Sentimental Sundays

Hi everybody

The weekend is going just too fast. 
At  Sentimental Sundays  it is Halloween time.  My card is certainly not what I planned - it was going to be something entirely different, but it did not work. 

On to a black base I layered two pieces of Apothecary papers - one spotted and the top one has the tree on it which I tore apart so that some of the spotted paper was visible. I overstamped with the spider, cat, wire and splodges - all Stampotique stamps and  I then stamped the web on a separate piece of orange paper and also a bat.  The skeleton was cut out and overlaid again.  The other stamps were all Tim Holtz.

For the inside I over printed one of the Sentimental Sundays freebie sentiments on to orange paper and inked the edges.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
