Halloween Bosko

Earlier this week I won this adorable Halloween Bosko image from Claudia at Die Cuts R Us so I just had to print him out and use him for a Halloween card.  
I decided to make a little scene with this guy.  The background panel was black paper that I rubbed my Palette new canvas ink pad across to make it look like a sky.  I added a fence and then some torn green paper for grass.  I cut the image out and then also cut in between his foot and the pumpkin so I could put the one pumpkin behind the grass.   I had to add a little bling so I put stickles on the band of Bosko's hat as well as on the bat in the sky.  

For my layout I used this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers.
I would also like to enter the following challenges with this card:

Paper Sundaes - "Fall or Halloween Colors"
Wild Orchid - Ribbons and Bows 
A Spoonfull of Sugar - "Anything Goes"
Copic Creations - Shading on or around images
Tuesday Taggers - "It Takes all sorts" - anything goes.  Sponsored by
Charisma Cardz - "Anything Goes"
Speedy the Cat Friends Challenge - "include a pumpkin on your card"
CES Challenges - "Animal Antics"
Catch the Bug - 3D Halloween - unfortunately the picture doesn't quite do it justice

Will be back in a bit to update with the recipe....but have to link up a challenge real quick.
