Halloween Time - Theme Week

It's Halloween time at Addicted to Stamps and More , it is also my first week as a member of the Design Team. I am so delighted to have been invited to join the group for I love how they are organising their challenges, each week we can indulge in a different form of addiction, including once a month we indulge in a scrapbook page.  Here is a list of how to play, but please do pop over to the main blog for lots of inspiration, information and pleasure.
Our Challenge Rounds consist of the following:

1. "Make Your Mark"
2. "Bingo Addict"
3. Theme Challenge
4. Addicted to {Colour} Challenge
5. Clean & Simple (CAS)
6. Sketch Challenge
The rules for each challenge are as follows:
Make your Mark - your entry MUST contain the use of Markers - Stampin' Write, Copics, Promarkers, Flexmarkers etc etc.
"Bingo Addict" - your entry MUST follow the Bingo card provided. When there is FREE box in the card, try not to use one of the elements already provided on the card. Use your imagination!
Theme Challenge - your entry MUST correspond with the Theme provided. This could be "Spring", "Halloween", "Christmas" etc etc.
Addicted to {Colour} Challenge - your entry MUST use the colours provided for the challenge as a focal point on your creation. White/Cream and Black can be used for cardstock, stamping and embellishments but your entry MUST contain the colours requested.
Clean & Simple (CAS) - your entry MUST be Clean and Simple. This means that clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of 'white' space should be used. 
* White space does not need to be 'white'. It can be any colour. White space is a term used for the area of your card with no stamping, embellishments etc.
Sketch Challenge - your entry MUST follow the sketch provided. If you do not have a particular shape that is shown on the sketch, you may substitute it. You may flip or rotate the sketch. 
I am also entering my card into That Craft Place challenge of Creating your own Background.

This started out as a white sheet of card, I coloured it with Distress inks, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Peeled Paint and Shattered Shutters. I used a combination of stamps to create the design. If your new and want to ask any questions please do, I enjoy sharing craft hints and tips.
