Over the Top Swap

I know that convention was nearly three months ago, I still have a few swaps I haven't shared yet.  And since this one from the Over the Top Swap I hosted at the Stampin' Addicts Meet and Greet is a Halloween card, I thought I'd better share it before October is over.

Colors: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White.  Stamps: Spooky Bingo Bits.  Big Shot: Peek-a-Boo Frames Bigz L and Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Embellishments: Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Brads, Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper .
So what makes this Over the Top?  First I did a color-block background with the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper on Whisper White Card Stock and ran that layer through the Big Shot to give it a "quilted" texture.  Next, I added two rows of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon to the bottom of the card and added a knot on each row.  Then I layered that on Razzleberry Card Stock and mounted it to a Basic Black Card base.  Then I added the Peek-A-Boo Frames with images on the inside AND the outside. When you open the windows, this is what you see:

Since the card was black, I added another piece white card stock to the inside and stamped it too:

So what do you think?  Is it Over the Top enough?
