Halloween with a Twist

Front of Card
Sugar Creek Hollow is having a HALLOWEEN WITH A TWIST challenge. Plumrose Lane, their sponsor, is providing a wonderful freebie that we must use to make your vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge entry. The freebie is a collage sheet of fabulous Halloween images along with an instant card and envelope. Collage sheet is shown below. Check out all the details at Sugar Creek Hollow and get the freebie.
Z Card Open
For my entry, I made a Z Card using an orange card base matted entirely with yellow CS embossed with a new Cuttlebug EF Polka dots. Edges of card were distressed with scissors and also distressed with Black and Wild Honey Distressed Inks. I cut out elements from the collage sheet and arranged on the card. Tags were added with purple twine and shiny orange brads. Tied some orange twine to the Owl's Hat. Sentiment was cut with Cottage Cutz Die from "Haunted House Border" .  The elements from the collage have a very Vintage look which is what I tried to create with my design and colors.
