Halloween Motherlode

If you're going to make a Halloween card for a challenge this is the week to do it.  I'll bet if you go over to the Pile It On site you can find another dozen to enter.
This was just for fun, I wanted to use this stamp for a long time and decided this was going to be the day.  I was happily amused all day between finding the stamp and picking the colors and papers and then going through the challenges, well I just couldn't have a better day. 
Here's the deets:
Stamp - Impression Obsession (it's an unmounted stamp and I didn't write the name anywhere)
Ink - image stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, edges sponged with Ranger Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters, Weathered Wood and Stampin' Up Barely Banana (I almost didn't stop, that sponging can get under your skin)
Paper - image stamped on Georgia Pacific cs; Warsaw green cs; K & Co. Halloween Specialty pad dp
Miscellaneous - stickles; grave charm from acharmingplace.com; ribbon; button; copics; Taylor's tiny twinkles; Martha Stewart ghost border and corner punch

Here's the challenges:
