A "Spook-tac-ular" Scene

Hello Friends......
It is a beautiful day here...sun shining, cooler temps..love it!!
I have bunches of things I should be doing...
but I needed something to get my "mojo" fired up and decided to "hand pick"
a challenge to do....
So many wonderful challenges...so little time!!
I chose the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs "Things With Wings"
I used to never, ever miss a CLD challenge...
but now it seems I hardly ever get time to enter!

But today is a new day and here I am with my "spooky" Halloween card!
I chose to do something different as I had purchased this awesome die
a long while back and the tree just "screamed" Halloween to me...
and an added bonus is my thing with wings "OWL" that comes with the tree die!!


In getting out my fall/Halloween supplies, I have 11 pads of the 6 x 6 Halloween papers alone...
I would not let myself buy any new until used some of what I had...
Do you think I might have a paper addiction ...I think I do!!

So between the DS paper and my "spooky" tree....
my entire card was "built" around these two!!

The tree was cut with some glitter paper
and a hint is if your glitter paper is a bit thick,... 
just peel off some of the backing paper before you run through your cutter,
cuts like a dream that way!!


The spider web in the corner was cut from the same paper
and a hint to glue it down..., 
before cutting use a piece of "soowang scor-paper" on the backside of your paper....
Run it through your machine, peel the backing off and it's ready to adhere!!

Recipe for my card:

Oh, my! Awesome! Love how you worked this into the things with wings challenge by using the owls. They're perfect! Love those witches. 11 pads? Wow! I have next to none and the one newish pad I have (several years old now) is not for kids, and those are mostly the only Halloween cards I make. Tsk, tsk. I actually do love Halloween cards, both kids and adults.
