Owl Wow! Look At That Creepy Tree!

Hey Hey Hey! Are you folks following the 12 Days of Halloween at Simply Betty Stamps? I am! I love love love Betty's Stamps and would love a chance at a term on her DT! I realize I may not be good enough, but I'm gonna try and see what happens!

This project is for Day 1. We were asked to do a project with an owl and a creepy tree on it. I admit, It was a challenge for me, to find a creepy tree! But then I found this creepy paper in my stash and it seemed perfect! I complimented the creepy scene paper with a scrap of orange and black stripes from my stash, then trimmed it with black faux lace.

My card uses the sketch at Sketches By Carly. The image is by Simply Betty Stamps. I went with the black and white look for my image this time. I seen a challenge for it and it looked like fun! Not to mention, it makes her look really creepy, doesn't it?I think she turned out to look very cool and makes a nice addition to the scene in the paper. The Owl and pumpkin is a dimensional three layered embellishement from K & C Company. My cousin and I searched all over Michael's to find the perfect owl for this! And believe me, it wasn't easy! I fell in love with this owl when I seen him and had to have him specifically for this project! Don't you just love his wiggly eyes?!

Hope you enjoyed my project! I had fun making it!
