You're probably wondering where I came up with this one. Sometimes I ask myself the same thing. I saw this werewolf necklace and thought the drawing resembled something that Edward Gorey might have done. And being a werewolf it got me thinking of Halloween...Voila!.. my card for today. The background is made with cray pas that I scribbled and then wiped with gel baby oil. The black part has some hologram ep on it (Thanks Roberta!). I used glossy accents and glitter on the moon and that lovely intricate gate and bats are courtesy of Kathleen and her cricut machine (Thanks Pal!). I did edge the card in the same mirrored paper that is framing the mystery lady...it's hard to tell in the photo as it's reflective.

Very cool Polly! That background you made, looks amazing!!! She is a pretty interesting lady looking over her shoulder with the bats along side. The framing looks awesome too! VERY creative card! I would have loved watching you do that background. Maybe some day you should to a tut! GREAT card!

LOVE Edward Gorey's work.....maybe because I'm a big fan of PBS's Mystery Theater. Your image caught my eye right away. What a neat card with a FANTASTIC bg and the shiny, sparkly moon. Interesting and terrific as always, Polly.

Polly, I'm not into Halloween, but I have to say that this card looks pretty amazing! I like your main focal point, and your bg is gorgeous! The ep looks phenominal; you used it in a wonderful way! Great looking card indeed~
