Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #25

Welcome to a 'spooky' edition of the Stampin' Celebration challenge! I hope you have time to join us and upload your creation to our team blog! We love having you all play along with us!
The inside of the card:
Right side panel:
Here's how I made this card:

Cut card base to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" out of Basic Black cardstock, score, and fold in half.
2) Cut a 2-1/8" piece from the front of the card so it leaves just a left pane and cover with Designer Series Paper (I used Razzleberry Lemonade (Retired) then add Elegant Eggplant ribbon
3) Cut inside layer of Lovely Lilac cardstock to 4" x 5-1/4" then adhere the Green Galore Latch piece (5-1/2" x 1-1/2") behind it before adhering to the Black card base
4) Using the 3-16" Corner Rounder punch, I rounded the edges of the Green Galore Latch
5) Using the Word Window punch, punch opening for the latch to glide into (about a 1/2" in)
6) With the Big Shot, I cut out a die-cut tag in Basic Black cardstock for the sentiment, stamped 'Trick or Treat, Scary & Sweet!' in Lovely Lilac ink on Whisper White cardstock, then punched out with the 1-1/4" Square punch, adhered to the black tag and added the Library Clip to the top!
7) My 'tree' is from the Birds & Branches die. The 'grass' is a strip of Green Galore cardstock, cut with the Scallop Edge punch, then I cut triangles out of each scallop to look like blades of grass. Then I used the Billboard Alphabet die to get the 'boo' sentiment!
8) Stamped sentiments from the 'Grateful Greetings' set in Basic Black ink on both sides of the latch then added a touch of orange with the Flower brad in the corner! Spooky huh!?! =)
