A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Use Some Black

It's challenge time at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is, "Use Some Black on Your Card".  I've gone with a Halloween card this time, using Chloe with Cauldron, which you'll find in the Pink Gem shop here.
 I coloured the image with my usual Promarkers using traditional Halloween colours, adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles to the foam in the cauldron.
I made a double dutch fold for this one, I haven't made one of these for ages, I'd forgotten how fun they are to make.  I used some old Papermania Capsule Collection papers matted onto purple cardstock, and some lime green spider's web against the black cardstock.  I also made a sort of bow out the spider's web and attached it to the card with a glitter brad.  The pumpkin was made with die cut ovals and some green craft wire, I quite like how it came out.  To finish off, I added a ticket sentiment, again coloured with Promarkers.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
