Flutter By Wednesday, Bring out your Halloween cheer!

Today at Flutter By Wednesday, you have a color challenge!  Green, Purple, Black and Orange!  Okay, I didn't get enough green in my card!  Hardly any green at all in fact.  I was using scraps already cut and most where orange, purple and black.  So, I went with it.  I had also started coloring this image during Irene a few months back, and she had yellow hair, and purple dress.  I filled in my flower, and ended up with a lot of orange!  I messed up my poor face when dot her eyes with my sharpie paint pen.  That's twice that's happened to me lately, and so not cool.  Anyone else have this happen to them?  Tips on how to make the paint stop plopping on my cards?  Nothing worse than it dropping at the end of the completed card, and it messing up the main part of the card.  I had to restamp, than color a face, and cut it out to make up for the mistake. 
I followed the sketch over at The Sweet  Stop.  This is sketch 131.  I've rotated it to fit my image better.

Anyhow, hope you play along with us at Flutter By Wednesday!  I'm sure you'll make some fantastic cards wit such a fun color combo!  Be sure to drop by the FBW blog to see what the other design team members made and link your card!
