IT WAS JUST A "HALLOWEEN TREE"...

but nothing is as it seems on Halloween nite!  Oh what a wonderful tree - harboring ghosts, and bats, and all kinds of spiders!  

Our challenge at Squigglefly this week is to add a flower to a card - it can be an embellishment, a paper flower, the actual image, etc.  I am sooooo in the mood for making Halloween cards that I just could not stop and I made 4 of this one.



I chose Close to my Heart papers from my stash and just let the coloring flow!  The moon starts in the center with a darker orange and as I circled to the outside I blended in lighter oranges.  I darkened the sky within the branches to allow the ghost to pop up and do his thing with a little icicle stickles (my favorite).  The flower is a die cut from my Halloween embellishment bin as well as the "BOO" sticker.  I also decided to keep this card at 5.75x5.75 trying to fit in my envelopes a bit better.

So come on over to Squigglefly's Blogspot and join us in the new fun challenge.  It's easy - doesn't have to be Halloween, just have a  "flower" on the card.
