Hey Scare-deee CAT!

My daughter is getting ready to go to Canada's Wonderland for the FEAR FEST! We went last year and it was a blast! Actually no I think it was the year before..and of course every year it rains for this event. I would like to go but DD doesn't want mommy tagging along. I loved the haunted houses and all the frightening THINGS that were walking around. I think the grossest thing for me was walking into the one haunted house and things crunching and scurring beneath your feet and when finding out they were actually cockroaches I started to freak OUT! I absolutely loathe those things. DH didn't seem to mind..I mean he does pick up bugs and throw them back outside with his bare hands...eeewwweee!!

This particular card was one of my many firsts. The background alone took my a few hours to create all done by hand. I tried my hardest to achieve a dusky looking nightfall to bring out the images I planned on using. I am truely happy with how this turned out.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Autumn Appartitions "Stampin' Up"
Paper: Bazzill, DP, Glossy Cardstock
Ink: Stampin' Up and Versafine
Embellishment: Brads, Ribbon, White gel pen, Punches, Cuttlebug Folders

If you would call a Halloween pretty, this one is the one! I love the soft colors of the sponged (or was it brayered?) background. Great card!
