A Wildy Wicked Wingy Thingie

How's that for a name for a challenge. If you're a card maker looking for challenges there's a list of some of my favorites on the sidebar. A couple weeks ago the Haunted Design House Blog started a challenge called "Macabre Monday". That's right up my alley, it's become a regular place for me to play. If you're a fan of Halloween go check it out. I think this flying skull is the perfect choice for "A Wildy Wicked Wingy Thingie". Another favorite challenge is from Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. The layout for this card is from the MOJO Challenge #102.
I used black card stock for the base., I distressed a piece of SEI double sided paper - Eerie Alley, Nightmare Square by scrapping it with a razor and then sponging it with Memento Bamboo Leaves. The stamped images are from Inkadinkado's "Rock Star" set, the sentiment is from MFT's "Monster Squad" set. They're stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock. The edges are sponged with Ranger Tea Dye and Memento Bamboo Leaves. The large circle and scalloped circle were made with nestibilities. I'm so glad I finally can use my Big Shot again. Being able to emboss my paper and cut shapes out is great. The side sliders were punched with Cuttlebug "Sliders" punch. I slide them onto ribbon from MFT's Halloween collection. The right top corner was punched with bats from EK Success. There are three MFT black hot fix crystals next to the left of the oval slider, they're hard to see, if you click to enlarge the picture you'll get a better look at the crystals, in real life they are easier to see and appreciate. The skull image on that slider is mounted on dimensionals.
Thanks for looking.
