All will be revealed!

Hi all
That got you didn't it?  Lol.  I am here to show you my latest project which is this cute little Reveal card.

This is my project for the new challenge over at Digi Choosday.
As you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the Design Team always receive some extra challenges to incorporate into their projects.
This time we were tasked to make a shaped card which had a "Reveal" on it.
The other aspect we were to incorporate was Halloween/Autumn/Fall.  I instantly thought of Halloween and racked my brain for inspiration - not easy at the best of times! Lol
Well, whilst looking through my Polkadoodles images I came across some gorgeous Autumnal images which included the word Bonfire! Eureka!
Why do I never think of Bonfire night when someone mentions Autumn?  
Well, today I did.

So these images are taken from the Autumn 2015 Bundle - this is a fabulous collection of Autumnal images and was perfect for what I had in mind.
I used my Craft Artist to manipulate the images.  I made three identical sized frames and put my images inside the frames.

The first image (above) is a complete image from the bundle.

The second image is one of the many leaves in the bundle.  I just added lots of leaves in ever decreasing sizes to make my "bonfire" and then added the word Bonfire underneath which again is a standalone image in the bundle.

The third image, again a standalone image, I added the wording to, to let everyone know where and when the bonfire was going to be held - my Reveal!
The gorgeous spotty background paper is from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 1 bundle digital download
I used one of my Martha Stewart Corner stamps to do the detail on the pull tag, which I think looks kinda sweet.

Then I added two Bare Basics wooden flat beads to finish it off.
I did think of adding some leaves to the bottom of the card, to make it look like a floor of leaves but I decided against it as I didn't want to detract from the main purpose of the card.

What do you think?  Is it too simple?
Or, does it do what it is supposed to do.
Now I have added this little video so that you can see the full "Reveal"
I'm not used to doing videos so it is a bit on the shaky side but you get the idea right? Lol

I am looking forward to seeing what you all come up with.
