Cute Daisy May, Digital Tuesday and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenges

This is my first venture in to completely digital card making. I didn't have to stick anything - no mess! No sketch either for this one. I recently bought some downloads from Scrapbookingmad (link on sidebar) all about - Halloween. When I was looking through them I saw the "Beware" banner and instantly thought of the challenge at Cute Daisy May where the sentiment/word is the focal point of the card.
Anyway, using My Craft Studio I positioned the images on the screen. I also used a backing paper and frame from Summer Driggs, Halloween download. This is a great site called Summertime Designs where there are lots of digital kits. All Summer asks is for a small donation.

For a bit more fun I put some bats and spiders in the corners, which spookly enough fits the challenge at Saturday Challenge, which is fancy corners.

My final challenge is the one at Digital Tuesday where they would like a male card, for any age and use a digital image - I think this qualifies!!!

Well fingers crossed and look forward to your thoughts on this card.
