On the 2nd Day of Halloween.....

This is for the SBC & TBD 12 days of Halloween challenge.  The top 12 were picked for day 1 and I made the cut!  Now for day 2 we were challenged to do a card with 2 trick-or-treaters.  I chose to use Millerstein and Jazzy.  I colored them with Copics and popped them up with SU dimensionals.  The background is actually my grandmother's house in Kentucky.  I tried to think of a place that I wouldn't want to trick-or-treat at and her house was it.  Since her passing it has really fallen apart and many family members believe it is haunted.

I put 3 dancing skeletons on the top and one on the side by a gravestone.  The gravestone on the bottom right is actually a cupcake pick that I found at WalMart.  I thought I could use them somehow in my crafting and a pack of 6 was only $1.79.  I heat embossed the tree and owl image in gold to keep it subtle and spooky.  The tree, pumpkin and sentiment are all from SU as is the cardstock.  I added some spooky grass using my MS drippy goo punch and some soft suede ink.

Having only 1 day to complete each of the 12 projects is quite difficult for me.  My time is very limited but I am going to try my best to get them in on time.  It is a lot of fun!  I wish everyone entering lots of luck.

Whoever took the picture of your grandmothers house is a wonderful photographer :) Great card though. Halloween is my very favorite holiday so I can't wait to see you others.
