Halloween - 5 Challenges

I have never really been into Halloween much throughout my life. I usually don't make and send Halloween cards but who could resist this adorable mouse image? So I bought some fun Halloween papers and decided to try some of the challenges currently going for this type of card. I am submitting this for 5 challenges:
2 Red Bananas - Halloween
The Pink Elephant - Black, Orange, Purple and White color challenge
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Halloween
Simon Says - Halloween
Mojo Monday - A sketch

Since I really don't do Halloween I didn't have much to work with in my stash of supplies and stamps. I think I could have used a dangling spider in the upper left corner. I bought a couple other Halloween images to work with so I may have to go find me a spider stamp.......I think one would have looked great on this card!

The sketch for this week at Mojo Monday is also for their monthly contest sketch. I am not sure if you are allowed to combine challenges or not on contest week but I wanted to at least give them credit and thank them for a great sketch! You can find it below.
