Halloween NOT? can't sleep for coughing!

Grrrrrrrrrrrr can't sleep for coughing so I have got up and had a play and a lemon tea with honey hope this blinking cough goes sooon its doing my head in now! ARGH! Anyway! I thought while it was all quite and a little spooky I would have a go at this card I have made it for 2 challenges Penny Black Saturday and Saturday spotlight these 2 challenges work really nice together for me today so I have made this card with a penny black stamp called fantasy i have used this stamp on many occasions but not as a Halloween seen, sooooo this card is both autumnal and its not a Halloween stamp hope its ok! I have used Adirondack ink, a brayer and my craft mat to make the scene and tree.
