Happy Halloween card (and a challenge)

Well the weather here in southern Arizona is finally cooling off...and you know what that means!?! Halloween is coming! YAY! I absolutely LOVE all things Halloween! Well, I challenged myself to make a Halloween card without using any black...and here it is. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. If any of you are so inclined, I'd love to see your take on a Halloween card using no black. Leave me a link in the comments, and I'll come check it out. Thanks for looking!
