Macabre Monday Colorblind Christmas

This week at Haunted Design House we've got a Colorblind Christmas. Our cards can have no red or green, not even a smidge. I've gone pretty neutral with kraft, black and white and created a stair step card.. My skellie hand is a Martha Stewart Halloween treat bag. I filled the fingers with paper strips so I could shape them a bit. It's holding an ornament which was a freebie from Tiddly Inks as well as the sentiment. The pine branches are cut on my Cricut from Joys of the Season (with the pinecones cut off) and stickled in black. I've also stamped some Tim Holtz snowflakes and inked with Distress Inks.

VERY Nightmare Before Christmas, don'tcha think? So I'm also entering it in the Smeared and Smudged Oh! the Horror! challenge. You can get a better idea of the dimension here and please don't miss the working noose hanger. LOVE that knot! LOL Now scurry off to HDH to see what the rest of the Minions did for the last challenge of the year and be sure to play along. Oh, and don't worry, we'll be back in January for plenty more creepy fun! In the meantime, Merry Spookimas!

  10. Oh-oh, should have known I'd run into something macabre along the way; however, I must say it's such a cute card. Woe is me, I must admit, all your cards are! LOL!
