Halloween card for today

I put together a lot of elements from different manufacturers for this one.   I started easily with my
orange card base and then the two strips of purple and orange with the star cutouts were border strips from a pkg of misc 6" border strips that go together for 12" strip.   My square piece of card stock under the haunted house is actually a pale purple color, but then I inked it in black ink to outline it some and then looked at it and decided to darken it up more and just patted it all over with orange ink.  I think it gave it a bit of a night and spooky look to it.   Then my haunted house die cut is from
Bella Blvd. collection Spookatcular that is new this year.

I'm entering this in 5 different challenges with Halloween themes.   It is that time of year.
