Anything Goes with a Twist - Halloween

Here is my first card for this week for the challenge at Fitztown Challenge Blog. I have chosen to make a Halloween card with the Blackthorne image of Last Enchanter Collection for the anything goes with a twist challenge.  Although Blackthorne is not a tradition Halloween image I thought he fit well into this card's theme.

This was a fun card to make with  a combination of digital image, die cuts, rubber stamps, string, brads, Washi tape and Halloween patterned paper.   The sentiment rubber stamp was by Class Act and the Halloween stamps are by Craftsmart.
