Magical Toffee Apple

It's my birthday today but more importantly, it's almost my favourite holiday.... Halloween!
When I went to the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking show last month I picked up some gorgeous goodies from Graphic 45 - 'Steampunk Spells' papers which I've been wanting forever and also some 'An Eerie Tale' embellishments which were on offer.  These I thought would be perfect for MelJen's Designs image 'Autumn Candy Apple'.
The full list of items I've used to create this card is:
  • A5 landscape card blank, purple card, script paper, twine and ribbon from my stash
  • Core'dinations Color Core card
  • Memento ink in Tuxedo black
  • Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks Forest Moss and Dried Marigold
  • MelJen's Designs image 'Autumn Candy Apple'
  • Graphic 45 'An Eerie Tale' embellishments
  • Promarkers - Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Raw Sienna, Mint Green, Bright Green, Berry Red, Crimson, Walnut, Umber, Caramel, Burnt Sienna
  • ColorBox Mica Magic 'Antique Gold'
