Spooky Halloween at The Manor

This card features the Manor House.  I've been making cards all week that are little scenes.  Once I decided that Halloween would be the theme for this one, I pulled out all of the dies that I thought might work.  I decided to use the Delicate Web in the upper right corner as a sort of sun.  I chose the Wrought Iron Fence to echo the lines in the web.  The Antique Lamp Post and the Sitting Cat anchor the left lower corner of the card, balancing the web. A Flying Bird and a few grey clouds pop against the orange-y background and further define the sky.  The sentiment is centered in the space below the front door of the Manor House.

Have you used the Manor House for any of your Halloween projects?  I love that the door opens--think I'll write a tiny "Boo" inside the door with my white pen. And because I always try to bring some element of the card design to the inside of the card, another Delicate Web, a Curious Cat, or a Leaping Cat might be just the thing to finish this card.

Happy Crafting!
