Bitten By The Bug 2 Curly Tree

I bet ya'll know what you are to use for the challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2 don't cha?! Yes, a curly tree. In fact the curly tree which is the first tree in the booklet from the Heritage cartridge. Now, I  haven't used this cartridge much at all. And never thought about the leafless trees. But now I think I may be using it a lot!! Of course, they said that you can still play along even if you don't have this cart. Just use a tree from another one. I picked up this great paper pack from Hobby Lobby. It is Paper Studio-Spooksville. Brand new for this year. It is 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper pack. This piece that I used really does a lot of the work for me. I cut the bottom part off for the front and used the top on the inside. I cut the pieces an 8th of an inch smaller than my card base. I cut 3 of the tree and glued them all together. The ghosts are cut from Happy Hauntings cartridge. I flipped some of them so they could face the other way, too. I did the back for the eyes/mouth and then 2 layers of white for each one. I popped up the trunk of the tree and some up the branches and glued a small place on each of the 2 ghosts behind the tree 'cus it was sticking up. The sentiment is a clear stamp that I had picked up at our LSS when it was opened. This challenge goes for 2 weeks. Although they do post a new challenge every Monday. Ya'll have plenty of time to join in on the fun! Hope ya like my card!!!! :)

Oh my gosh Sharon, I think this is just fabulous. Don't you love it when the paper helps you out! Love all the little ghosts flying around. If I ever travel to a place that has a Hobby Lobby I'm going to have to look for the
8 1/2x11" stacks. I didn't bring any of my 12x12" paper with me in our RV because of limited storage space. It's driving me nuts not having any of my fabulous holiday papers. But 8 1/2x11" takes up less room, gotta find some. LOL Thanks for playing along with us this week at BBTB2.
