Halloween Card 5

Rubber stamp images are oldies from Stampin' Up!, except for the tree which is unknown.
The flower and ticket paper punch are also from SU!;
the leaf punches are unknown. 

Papers are from an old Die Cuts With A View paper stack.

Cuttlebug spiderweb embossing folder.

The tree was stamped onto glossy card stock that I sponged ink onto
as well as rubbed ink pads directly on it.
It reminds me of a photo I took last year of a barren tree
in the middle of a field, shrouded in fog.

Thanks for looking =)

This card is being submitted to the Retro Rubber Challenge, Boo!
I have no idea how old the tree image is or where it even came from.
It was gifted to me several years ago.
The Happy Halloween ticket is from Stampin' Up!, 4 years old.
I had to giggle as I looked up the age of this set,
it is one of the newest rubber stamps that I have used
I think in the Retro Rubber challenge ;)
Oh, I also lightly used the Sanded background stamp
on the tree and Autumn for the veins on the leaves,
both of which are well over 5 years old from SU!
