Not a Typical Halloween Card - PPA223 & PP216

So, what do you do when you want to make a Halloween card but don't really own any Halloween stamps? You improvise! Today's card is for the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the theme challenge at the paper players. The only Halloween set I have is from the most recent Paper Pumpkin, so I used that for the sentiment. Then I pulled out the You Little Furball set to stamp some black cats and the Gorgeous Grunge set for some background details.
** Before anyone complains about the whole black cat thing, I have my own black kitty, and don't buy into the whole black cats are bad luck thing :)
Here's my black cat Jim :)

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: You Little Furball, Gorgeous Grunge, Paper Pumpkin set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Tangelo Twist, Basic Black, Very Vanilla card stock
Misc: Oval Framelits, Basic Black Candy Dots, Dimensionals, Banner Punch
