My First Challenge

OK, so this is my second post on my new blog. Broken Box Stock is having a challenge so I though I'd give it a try. I've never entered one before :) Their theme is "Make a Halloween Card" which seems simple enough so I'm going to enter this card:

When I started making this I wasn't planning to how things change! Anyway I didn't always save where I got an image so if it's yours please let me know. I believe these all came from the Graphics Fairy site. The sentiment I think came from TLC Creations but I'm not positive. If you haven't been to either site you should take a look. The Graphics Fairy is filled with interesting vintage images and TLC has great sentiments daily plus a shop. Both generously gives them away and they are FAB.
Anyway a little about the card. I inserted text box images over the bottles and made witchy labels before printing. On this particular card I choose to use chalks to give them that soft antique look. Then I fussy cut each image attached my background paper and witch flat to the card. Next I attached two copies of the table so it would look like the table cloth was 3d when popped up on dots. On the table, I placed the bottles and a skull with candle that I manipulated to curve out while sticking down also with pop dots. The sentiment was printed, then I distressed the heck out of it and attached in a curvy manner as well. You can see it a little better in the picture below.

For the inside, I mounted different papers and a little round tag to give it some dimension. I like how it turned out. It's a little different then most cards I've seen out there. So what do you think?

I'm entering this card into:
