Spooky Halloween

Each month Gingersnap Creations picks a theme for Home Page Art and members enter their creations, this is the card that I submitted for the month of October, the theme being "Spooky."

My grandson Kevin was born on Halloween, so of course he needed a special card, he will be 15 this year, can't believe it, I can't be that old. LOL.

The card is a 3D haunted house with all kinds of crazy creatures inside. On the front of the card dimensionals were used for the shutters. Distressed the edges of the windows and also the eves. What would a haunted house be without spiders and a purple door.

When you open the card, there seems to be alot of activity. Ghosts popping out, witches brewing their special potions a few laughing pumpkins, the tombstones also have skulls on them, but they are hard to see, got them at Michaels, know that Kevin will be "spooked" and surprised with the "Boo" that also pops out.
The inside of the card could also hold pictures of the kids in there Halloween costumes, so that family members could see how fun the holiday can be, what a great Treat for Grandma and Grandpa.
Was checking out all the challenges out there and this card also fit the bill for Daring Card Makers, folding is the challenge, think this card fits right into this challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day.
