Happy Haunting

Here's a nice spooky Halloween 12"x12" layout. The patterned cardstock came from the DCWV Midnight Spell stack, except for the green mat, which is by K&Company. The large photo mat is for a 4"x6" photo, and the three small ones are for 2 1/2"x3 1/2" photos. The corner spider web is from October 31st. The cricular spider web and the black widow spider is from Pumpkin Carving. The bat is from Wrap It Up and the jack-o-lanterns and title are from Happy Hauntings. I covered the spider webs with diamond Stickles, put glossy accents on the bat's wings and the hourglass of the black widow. I used crackle accents on the spider. The jack-o-lanterns are embossed with the Distress Stripes folder. I used purple flocking powder on the body of the bat and the title. I also gave the bat some red gem eyes. I finished it off with a spider button on the circular web.

I made this for the following challenges:
