Happy Haunting...

TGIF my friends!

Hello Bluebird recently announced an Instagram challenge to create a spooky night themed card using their stamps. Talk about perfect timing as I already had the Ghostly Greetings stamp set pulled and ready to create with. These happy little spooks are so stinkin' cute and I had a lot of fun coloring them to create translucent and glowing type effects. The bat was added in from the Halloween Fun set and I really like how it looks like he can't quite believe what he is seeing, LOL! I used the Gallery Frame #3 to frame in the entire scene then colored on of the Birch Tree dies and added it kinda woven over and under the frame for something a bit different and unexpected. I gotta say, Halloween cards are always a blast to create but this one makes me especially happy. :)
