Double flap Halloween card

Hello, welcome to my blog.  I have a fun Halloween card to share with you today.  I saw a card similar to this over on Dawn Griffith's blog and had to give it a try.  This will be the other card for my club class.
I chose Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive for my color combination with a splash of glitter.  One can never have too much glitter, right?  I used 3 different stamp sets for this card, Ghoulish Grunge, Spooky Fun and Halloween Scares.  For the outside layer, I stamped the brick wall from Ghoulish Grunge onto the Elegant Eggplant with the same color ink. For the stamped image I started with a piece of Whisper White and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.  The moon was a mask made with the 1 1/4" circle punch and punched from a sticky note.  All of the images were stamped in archival black ink using the Spooky Fun and Halloween Scares stamp sets.

For the next layer I have an insert of Old Olive card stock stamped with the spider web from Ghoulish Grunge.  The web is stamped in Old Olive as well.  This panel was sponged the same as the front using Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.  I did the sponging first, and then stamped.  
The little spider, the sentiment and the bats are from Spooky Fun and the tree is from Halloween Scares, all stamped in archival black ink
The final layer is a piece of Whisper White stamped with images from the Spooky Fun set.  For both of the moons, I brushed on some clear wink of stella to add just a little more glitter.  Below are all the measurements along with the supplies list.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate it!
