Leafless tree

Hi everyone.  It's cold and crisp here today.  That's not what I was hoping for since I'll be participating in the Crop Walk today but with layers on I'll do fine.  After all, some people have to walk miles for food or water in rain or shine, hot or cold.  Forty people from our church are walking and the path is along the river so it will be a good time, raising money for a good cause.

My card today is for the Bitten By the Bug2 challenge - use a tree.  I think they were thinking about a fall tree when the idea was proposed but I decided to do a leafless, rather spooky tree.


The image is from Happy Hauntings, cut from a DCWV texture paper that looks like real wood. Well, at least it does when you see the entire page.  The bat is also from HH.  The background paper is from a DCWV photo stack.  The tree is mounted on foam (I'm so glad I made my own black foamies) and the Boo! is stamped and embossed in black. 

I'm slowly but surely getting my Halloween cards done.  I wonder how many challenges this week I'll be able to make one for.
