Dutch Paper Crafts Halloween House

The release i am using is called the Marianne Design "Garden Release" for Dutch Paper Crafts.
The set includes, 2 bench seats, topiary, butterfly, wheelbarrow and watering can.

For this project i created a Halloween house using Marianne Designs "straight" bench seat #LR0259 from the release:
Some other dies on this card NOT in the release are:
Marianne Designs House CR1217

What i did:
i cut out the house in black coredinations paper (core is gray) and sanded it.  Then i cut the house out of a double sided paper with orange dots on one side and spider webs on the back side.. I cut the top of the house off and rotated it for the top of the house.  Then i machine stitches the sides of the orange dotted house to the black house.  Then i cut up the front of the house so that the card will open in the center.  I had to discard the door.  I attached the bench seat to the right side flap.  Colored up Tilda and attached her to the seat.   I added glitter black pipe cleaners to the peaks of the house with a glue gun.  Then i was trying to find some paper to fill the windows and found the ghosts, but i wanted something different for the top window and came across this cut out circle i had in my stash, my intention was to cut it to fit the window and then i realized it would make a perfect rotating i attached it with a brad.  Then i added the stickers to make the sentiments.
