Halloween card meets 5 challenges

I needed a little push for my creative juices, so I checked my challenge blogs.  Tuesday Throwdown wanted some paper pleating, Creative Belli wanted things that begin with "B",  Corrosive wanted masking, Stamps R Us wanted Halloween and Truly Scrumptious provided the sketch.

Pleating paper really uses a lot, so I am guilty of grabbing the cheapest stuff in my stash, some old DCWV.  I didn't even make it across the card, but there is enough for texture.  What starts with B?  Black cat, of course!  This one is an adhesive foamie I picked up at the dollar store last year.  I'm sure I haven't used those foamies since last Halloween.  I couldn't tell you how long it has been since I tied ribbon to a spiral clip, either.
So where is the masking?  On the inside!

The scale is off - I'm only showing the corner in this picture, but I used the release paper from the foamie and used it as a  mask, echoing the cat on the inside.

This was fun - I love challenges!
