Paper Craft Star Recipe Challenge

I made this Halloween card for the Paper Craft Star recipe challenge. The recipe was to make a card 5.5 x 5.5 with a 5 in mat. You had to score your mat 5 times 1/4 in. You also had to use three buttons and three flowers cut from a diecut or punch. I used the Hooligans paperpack from CTMH. I put a button in the middle of my big flower and pear colored buttons in the middle of my mini flowers. I inked my score lines to make them more visible. Thanks for looking at my newest creation.
