Hi Everyone!

Its OFFICIALLY October!! And only 30 days to HALLOWEEN!!

This week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #71 - BOO TO YOU is all about HALLOWEEN. Simply create a NEW - no backlinking, please - Halloween Card or Project.

My BOO TO YOU(Halloween) Project, was inspired by the "Tomb It May Concern" Sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Best Witches To You" Stamp Set.

As soon as I saw the sentiment, I knew I wanted to make a Tomb Shaped Card. I used the "Headstone" image from the Cricut Simply Cricut cut at 5-1/2".

I wanted to give the Tomb an elegant yet SPOOKY/HALLOWEEN feel. I embellished the Tomb with a Black "Flower Vine" from the Cricut Freshly Picked "Gate" image at 4".

The "Flower Vine" was cut several times to give the card some deminsion.

The Mini Roses are the "Scallop4" Flower from the Cricut Flower Shoppe Cartridge cut at various sizes and centered with a glass head pin.

I then added a "RIP" sign cut at 1/2" from the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge. The scroll is from the Cricut Life's A Party  "Tombstone", all the cuts were hidden leaving only the scroll at 4.25".

To the Tomb's step, I added a double-loop bow made from My Craft Spot's "Deep Purple" Crinkle Ribbon. I added some Traditional "Black Licorice" Twine - available at My Craft Spot - and inserted a Maya Road Stick Pin painted Black.

To the card's inside I used the "Have a Hauntingly Delightful Halloween"  from the My Craft Spot "Ghostly Greetings" Stamp Set.

If you're still with me, I hope you have been inspired by my "TOMB IT MAY CONCERN" Shaped Card, and join us over at My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #71 - BOO TO YOU!
