Happy Hauntings.

Having had fun making the Never Ending Card for my last Butterfly Challenge I decided to use the shape again  and make a Halloween card to send to our Grandson.  It has been posted so he should be opening it today.
All of the digis are freebies from various sites I have collected over the last few years and knew would get used eventually.  I used orange and black cardstock to make the base card and the layers.
 This is the front of the card.  The house line is City silhouette by Beyond the Fringe. Wordings I created in word and printed off.  The cat with pumpkin  and the bat wings poster are  from The Sum Of All Crafts freebies.
The card opens up to reveal the next layer. I had already given the card to The Doc to sign it before realising  I hadn't taken any photos of the inside of the card so I have blanked out Grandson's name.
 The black cat is called Spook Cat from Digi Stamp Boutique. The witch and halloween scrap book page paper are from The Sum Of All Crafts freebies. This then opens up to the next layer.
 The last layer is then revealed below. The witch potion poster is from The Sum Of All Crafts freebies.
This layer then returns you to the front of the card to start all over again!! It really is never ending.

Entering this card into the following challenges for Halloween:
Daring Card Makers # Make It Spooky
Shopping Our Stash #407 Halloween.
Little Red Waggon #521 Scary It.
Tales From The Craft Room #9 Halloween.
Water Cooler Challenges #245 Anything goes.

To go with the card I also made this box of treats.  'Pinky' had entered a gorgeous butterfly candy bar box that she had made for the last Butterfly Challenge and she also included an excellent video on how to make. Check out her entry here  at No 7.
I used up the scraps from the card above to decorate the box and also made it slightly deeper as the pumpkin balls were larger than a flat candy bar. I made my sides 3 qtrs of an inch instead of half an inch. Pictures as below.

 I made a witch slider for the box closure
 Side ways view.
You slide the witch down the slider bar  to open the box up.
