This is Halloween, this is Halloween...

Ok.  So there's this cool challenge over at Challenge 5: Vellum or Parchment.  I kinda wanted to get in on it but was coming up a bit blank on what to do.  I looked at the DT samples.  GORGEOUS florals.  I looked at entries.  GORGEOUS florals.  What's a girl who's generally not into florals to do?  Hey!  Let's see what's on the stamp shelf that would look great in white... look!  A skeleton and a ghost!  Cool!  Halloween!  :) 
I feel that there's still something missing but I haven't figured out what. Part of me is screaming to put a black glittery flower on in place of the left bottom bat... we'll see. And yes, the crow at the top does stick up off of the edge. I like it as a topper.
The skeleton was stamped with VersaMark, topped with Heat & Stick powder and topped again with black glitter.  I then flipped it and dry embossed the back side of the vellum so that the skeleton raised and turned white.
