A "BOO-kmark" for Halloween

We don't celebrate Halloween in a big way in Australia, having said that I just had the cutest bunch of kids rock up for their treats - and I did carve a pumpkin... alright, I didn't have a pumpkin so I used a sweet potato - but it looked the goods :-)  My hubby took a photo with his phone, so I'll upload it later.  Even though we don't "do" Halloween, I love all the cute images that are out there for it, and there are so many Spooky themed challenges at the moment, I thought why not?  
I made a bookmark, which I did offer as an alternative to the sweet treats in my basket, but only the mums thought it was a good idea, lol, so I still have it - my sister loves all things witchy so she'll probably end up with it.  Cupcake Craft Challenges has Witches and/or Pumpkins for their challenge, I'm in.
I love these little magnetic bookmarks, I get to colour up nice images... this is Alison the Witch from Tiddly Inks... and use nice papers (these are from my stash,  I do remember the one was called Oogie Boogie - can't think why I remember that, lol) and even add some embellies. They take a fraction of the time a card takes to make, which with my current level of activity means I at least get something finished :-)  Gem of a Challenge has Polka Dots or Spots as their challenge so I'm entering there.
I've coloured the image with Copics, cut it out, stuck it on.   Totally Gorjuss and Addicted to Stamps have Things With Wings as their challenge theme, I hope Alisons medium counts :-)  The 2 Sisters Challenge this time around is Halloween Colours, so I'm entering there and Colour Me Copic has Anything Goes with a Twist of Orange, so I'm entering there too.
The magnets are covered with more paper (on the inside of the bookmark)  The rest is pretty obvious, the bling is from my stash.  Paper Pretties has a Bling theme, so I'm in there too.
Usually I don't present the challenges I enter as a list, but there are so many with a Halloween theme that I will be listing them this time....

Hmmm... I can't decide whether I would have taken the candy or the bookmark. I would have wanted them both!

Is the bling meant to stick out of the bottom and top of the book? I find having to be flat one of the quite restricting things about making bookmarks -- I want my books to close, after all!
