How to: get the gothic look

It seems like I made more Halloween cards this year than I planned LOL 
I have been invited to be a GDT for the next two challenges at
and I am so happy! The first one starts today and the theme is
Make us scream!

I decided to go gothic style this time.
For this card I used a Jade Dragonne's image again. This one is called 'Gothic bat', I colored it with Promarkers and distressed with two distress inks.
This time I used some digital papers and printables, mostly from HERE and HERE. Black gause, black flowers, dark butterflies and some metal embellishments refer to the gothic style.
There is no sentiment on this card, so it can be used for many occassions.
Thank you for inviting me and for visiting my blog!
I would like to enter the following challenges: (2nd entry)
This card has been chosen for TOP 4 at
and was also a DT pick at
and also won a prize at
