Halloween Birthday...

Hello..i would like to share my card with you, I don't have any Halloween stamps not one,but this morning while I was looking through some of my stamps that have not seen day light for so long,  I came across this stamp it comes on a A4 sheet about 12 stamps all together all girls dressed in different costume, I can not remember who's stamps they are but a little voice in my head is saying Debbie Moore but I am not I thought I would try and put something together to make a Halloween card, I am really out of my comfort zone with this card, I love to see all the gorgeous cards you lovely crafters make with the distress inks , chalks and other techniques I have had loads of goes , but as always  like I have with this card I go in to heavy handed with the ink and I always put myself off by thinking it's no good enough and I end up filing it in the seeing that it's my eldest granddaughters birthday tomorrow i thought I would give it to her, I know she will love it no matter what lol..I was going to enter this card into a couple of challenges but seeing that it's holloween tomorrow I don't think I will bother now...I forgot to mention that the cat is a memory box die that I cut out using shrink plastic, oh boy did I have fun it's years since I used shrink plastic and it still amazes me...
