To Trick or To Treat

Happy Saturday Everyone!
I have a Halloween card to share with you today!  This card was very fun to make, I was up till midnight last night working on it!  I just couldn't stop!
I started with the backing for the bat/moon scene.  The stripped paper has a piece of vellum placed over top of it to help dull down the boldness of the stripes.  I really like that technique because it still allows me to use my patterned papers, but with the vellum they don't take over the card and overpower the details.
Then I added the moon (which has the edges slightly inked with orange), I cut out thin clouds and some bats in varying sizes from the Cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings.
The sentiment ("To Trick or To Treat, That's the Real Question," Love it!) is a digi stamp that I printed off on white card stock.  I colored in some of the details like the spiders and swirls to help give it a little more pop, rather than it all be black.
The little spider webs are cut with my Martha Stewart punch and inked them with a touch of black.
The green dotted stripe of paper is inked around the edges with orange and black to give it a worn dirty look.
The 4 stars at the top I added some black 3D paint on the top and covered them with clear glitter so they sparkled a little bit but not too much.  The bats also are covered in the black 3D paint to give them a sheen.
Thanks for stopping by!
