Boo! Did I Scare You?

Happy October! This is my DT project for the October challenge at Cute as a Button Challenge Blog. Be sure to pop on over and check out what my teammies have created to inspire the crafter in you!
Click on the images for a closer look!
I'm really just LOVING these single layer cards! I can focus all the attention on the image and coloring. The only inkling of a doubt is that I'm not sure my coloring should have so much focus since I consider myself a learner! lol I've only been coloring since 2012 and I don't practice as often as I should. But I'm getting braver with my techniques and the single layer forces me to really apply my coloring skills to the task at hand. lol 
This image reminded me of my daughter's Halloween costume of a lady bug when she was probably about four. lol I can still see her telling me with so much concern in her voice that she worried she might scare someone! lol So inside the card, I stamped the sentiment "Don't you hate when everyone says your costume is cute?" Because that is EXACTLY what my friends said about the costume! I'd purchased her and brother matching super man and super girl costumes. I made the mistake of washing them Halloween morning and the dryer was set too high and it fried the costumes! So I had to scramble to come up with something! The Today Show had just shown how to make a lady bug costume with an orange table cloth and black paper and pipe cleaners. Phew! Halloween of 1992 was saved! 
I've used Chloe Fish Costume and colored the image with Copic markers. I added some sequins for some sparkle and the "BOO" sentiment is from Raisin Boat's stamp set called Halloween All Around. I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card from a stamp set called Boo Hoo also from Raisin Boat.
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
