Halloween Frenzy

This card meets a number of challenges this week and month. Let me start by saying that Hels at Ink on my Fingers challenged us with the theme Mojo. At first I just scratched my head. I had no idea how to do a theme representing mojo. After thinking a while, I realized that my mojo is exhilerated when I am able to combine (meaningfully) several swaps together.
Mojo Monday's sketch is often a starting point. Two challenges involved Halloween -- Tuesday Throwdown and Stampsmith. For the Stampsmith challenge we had to use at least one Stampsmith stamp. I used the witch from the Wizard of Oz stamp sheet. The Spicy Supply Challenge at Gingersnap creations is to use crimpers.  The orange panel is made from metal. Crimpers and metal are a match made in heaven.
Here I have a card which satisfies five challenges and my mojo is very happy.
