A Gem of a Challenge DT Project - Spooky

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is "Spooky", as Halloween is drawing near.  I don't send Halloween cards, so I decided to make a wall hanging decoration, which my son loves.  I've used a pre-coloured digi set from Pink Gem this time, you'll find it in the shop here.  When you buy a Pink Gem digi, you get line art and pre-coloured images, in both jpeg and png formats, making them great value for money.
 The hanging was simply made from three pieces of thick black card, matted with orange card, with eyelets set in each piece, then threaded with orange ribbon, knotting to secure.  The images I used were pre-coloured, so it was a simple click and print, after which I embellished them with gems, die cut stars and a pumpkin made from die cut ovals and some green craft wire.  The fancy bows are actually Halloween hair clips from a pound shop, I got a pack of four for a pound, I picked them up with craft projects in mind.
