Picture perfect Halloween

Hiya!

Hi-ho, hi-ho it's back to work I go... but before I do I have a quick and fun little Halloween card to share today. :)

I finally made it to the last (but not least) of the Halloween images that I had started during past coloring videos. This little cutie is Miss Rosalie from CC Designs and I used her in my 'black hair and black clothes' tutorial. I was going for a kind of Wednesday from the Addam's Family type vibe with her and new from the get-go that I wanted to pair her up with these fun tombstone stamps that I got this year. They are a clear set from Inkadinkado and they originally have text in each of the tombstones... none of which are ones I saw myself using much soooo... I grabbed a pair of fine tip scissors and carefully cut the text out of each stamp. Now I have six blank tombstones that I can add anything I want to them, which is great!
And how cute is that Polaroid frame? I was using up more Mischievous scraps on this card and came across the die cut sheet that goes with the line. As soon as I saw this frame I knew just how I wanted to create Rosalie's scene. I like how it contains everything and looks like Pugsley or Cousin It took a snapshot of her in the graveyard on Halloween night. And the added bonus is the perfect little place that it provides for a sentiment... love it! I'm thinking I may need to make some of my own frames like this because it would be super easy to do.

Alrighty, time for hair and make-up.
TTYL! :)

Amy this is so adorable! I love how you have used the picture effect on your card. This is just an awesome idea. I do have to laugh at myself for saying however that a picture of a little girl in a grave yard is cute. heehee! How dark is that. Hope you have a great day at work. Hugs, Lisa
