Trick or Treat with Monica.....

Hello everyone: This morning I was looking for some challenges to make some Halloween cards for family and friends and I found one called Craftaholics  and the challenge is to make Halloween cards for girls.  Now, many of you know how much I love the House Mouse siblings so, as soon as I saw this challenge's theme, my mind fluttered to this sweet stamp, here is a Halloween card I was asked to make by one of my Triathlon friends (perfect timing for this challenge), her little step-granddaughter wants to be a butterfly for Halloween, isn't that so sweet?! She is 5 years old and her grandma has been working hard making the costume, I just hope the weather will cooperate on Halloween day up there in Spokane!!
I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This image is from House Mouse and it's called Monica Butterfly, she is adorable, isn't she?
I stamped this image onto a die cut piece of Canson Water color paper and colored it with SU markers, the aqua painter and Prismacolor pencils.
The pattern paper is very old from SU, the other papers and the ribbons are from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from my stash and the little spider and bat from a retired SU set called "Googly Ghouls", scary aren't they?
I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
