Challenge #274 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~~ Hey Ghoulfriend

What a great title for a challenge ~~ thank you, Chris!!! The crew at  Shopping Our Stash  would like to you make a Halloween card or project.

Halloween is not as huge a celebration as it is in the U.S. so I don't make a lot of Halloween cards, but if there are challenges to be done then send them off to who ever I think would like a surprise. I had a lot of fun making this card and "shhh it's for my great-grandson". I bought a Pop up Die I think about 1 1/2 years or longer and had never taken it out of the package, it looked like a lot of work but surprise, surprise it wasn't as hard as it looked.

I had printed this super cute image from Bugaboo Stamps quite a while ago and had it all layered on gold and black ready to go. I added some colour to the windows, lights and eyes then using some chalks I did the background in pink and yellow for an eerie sky.  I punched the fence and popped it up and added the black cat that I found in that "parts box" The background paper is from Bo Bunny also a couple of years old.

Tada!! the pop up part of the card, The sentiments are computer generated and the bats are from an EK bat punch I found at Dollarama and I attached them with thin strips of acetate. The paper is from a 12 X 12 pad I bought 2 maybe 3 years ago at Winners.

Close up of the pop up part of the card and of course the super cute bats.

Well done! I am loving all your details, but especially those bats inside!

Barbara, I love seeing silhouette haunted houses, they look even more frightful. This one, with all the spooky critters flying and crawling around, is just awesome but I don't think I would go trick or treating there, not even for butterfingers peanut butter bars.
Awesome job!!
