Cute Card Thursday - got glitter

As promised my Halloween mini I made at the retreat last weekend.
Seeing as I got coated in glitter from all the glittery papers in the MME Lost and Found Halloween pack I used  ( a steal I picked up at I decided it would fit perfectly into this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge
Got Glitter?
We are sponsored this week by Stamp Fairy
 I pre-prepared all my shaped pages prior to the retreat and painted them all in black acrylic paint.
I drew the windows and door by hand and cut them out, all very time consuming but fun!
The pumpkins, crows, cat  and bat are rub-ons.
The fence is a Whimsy Stamps die.

 I supplemented my MME papers and embellishments with some from Authentique, the phrases were particularly appropriate.

 some close ups!

there it is, quite a project, took me almost all of the free crop time we had on the retreat!  So worth it though, I loved making it!  I am going to have to start on my December Daily, think mini's are my new thing!
Thank you for dropping by!
