Cheery Lynn Designs Spiderweb Window card

One of the great things about Cheery Lynn Designs dies is the ability to cut window openings in your card and make frames to edge the opening.

I began by nesting a Cheery Lynn Designs Circle Stackers die inside a Scallop Circle Stackers die to cut two orange frames for my window .  Next I added this great paper from Authentique's Glowing 6x6 paper pad to my orange card base.  I centered a Silver Circle Stacker and die cut my window.  Using the same die, I cut an acetate panel for the window.  I glued one of the scalloped circle frames onto the card front, then added Cheery Lynn Design's new Spiderweb die cut on top.  I inserted the acetate panel and then added the other frame to the back side of the card front, creating the window.  I die cut a couple of Bats and popped them up on the front of the card. For the inside of my card using Adobe Photoshop Elements,  I combined two digi images from Make It Crafty, Eerie Scene and  Mini Headless Horseman.

I added a gradient background before printing the image onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Fence - E42, E43
Pumpkins - YR61, YR65, YR68, W1
Cape - C1, C2, C4, C5, C6
Pants and Shirt - V12, V15, V17
Boots - C5
Vines and Leaf - YG61, YG63
Stems - E44

The checkered DP on the inside is from the same Authentique Glowing paper pack.  I need to find an appropriate saying to finish off the inside of the card.  Finished size is 6" square.  I am entering this card into the Black and Orange challenge over at Make It Colourful. 

Additional Challenges:
Corrosive Challenge - Punches or Dies
Sketchy Colors - Orange, Black and White
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pumpkins
