Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge - Halloween Accordion Card

It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge day today, with the theme of 'G-G-G-GHOST!' - yep, Halloween cards! I don't make many Halloween cards, but I really enjoyed doing this one, using dies from Karen's super-cute Halloween Elements Die Set, with the Charm Accordion Die Set for the background card.

I used papers from Echo Park's 'The Apothecary Emporium' 6x6 pad, and on the first panel used the hedgehog from the Winter Animals die set. I drew a little pumpkin for the hedgehog to hold, and decorated the bottom of all the panels with fence die cuts from House & Fence Pop-Up set, and grass from the Nature Edges Die Set.
I used a raven from the Halloween Elements set to make the charm in the first charm frame, and the ghost is from the same set.

For the third and fourth panels I used more dies from the Halloween Elements set - they're the perfect size for the Charm Accordion floating panels!
I also used an old stamp for the sentiment, and drew another little pumpkin to hang as a charm.

For the die in the centre charm frame - bit hard to show - but I used a hand from the Halloween Elements die set.

For the card front, the hedgehog panel swivels round, and I just added a simple trim, with a stamped and hand-cut spider.
