Spooky and my First Copic Card!!!!

Hello everyone! I have returned from my holiday and I am now tring to get caught up with everything! I am in the middle of doing some blog hopping too so all you lovely ladies that I have neglected over the last few weeks, I will be visiting you soon!!! Sorry about the poor photos for this card, it is very windy outside and I was determined to get a card posted today so I had to take my pictures inside and the light wasn't so good! While I was in England I also bought some copics too and this is my very first card with them!!!!! and I woud have to pick and image that was predominently black wouldn't I!!!! Although I don't think it turned out too badly!

This card is for a few challenges and it is my first Magnolia DT card using stamps from the So Spooky Collection. I know I have just posted two challenge blog DT cards that had a halloween theme and I said I had no halloween stamps..... well my Magnolia DT kit arrived the day before I went on my holidays and I had already pre posted my other cards and I didn't have the time to make anything else. The challenges that this cards fits are; Just Magnolia Week 27 that has a theme of Bright and Zingy - hopefully the orange is bright enough, but if there is too much black and it doesn't count I understand, Copic Creations Challenge 14 that has a theme of colouring black, Magnolia Down Under Challenge 24, Creative Inspirations Challenge 32 and Roses on Paper Challenge 23 all have a theme of Halloween.

Card/Paper: All in my Magnolia DT Kit
Stamps: Magnolia - So Spooky Collection
Colouring: Copics - E00, E51, R20, YR02, YR04, YR07, C1, C3, C5, C7, 100, 0, Inkssentials pen for highlights
