Halloween Rock Birthday Card!

Here's my offering for Halloween! I was asked to make a card for a Friends husband's 40th Birthday this weekend. It gave me a chance to try out the Tim Holtz Skull Grungboard I have had for ages! I covered it with silver gilding then distressed it with a Cats Eye Charcoal ink pad. Added some silver brads on the bone ends & attached some lightweight chains. I matted the purple card that I dry embossed using a Glitter Girls Embossing panels on some black sparkle paper then on silver card. Inside the card the snake effect paper I used was from Paperchase. I made the Sentiment Embellishments using some La Blanche clear sparkle window stickers. I first of all placed a peel off on it then covered it with fancy black glittery card, again from Paperchase & then mounted them on 3D foam. I attached the Bat charm underneath the Happy Birthday embellishment using Pinflair glue.
I had to make a box for the card as it was quite heavy & deep, due to all the layers on it! I just made up another similer embellishment for the box again using another Tim Holtz Grungboard piece, layered up and embossed with eyelets and some purple & silver threaded wire around the edge. I am pleased with the end result and I enjoyed doing something different too!
Well hope you all enjoy the spooky weekend when the vail between the world's are thin! Remember those who have gone before & raise a glass to the Old One's! Blessings to you all!
