Macabre Monday "Bare Bones" Week Two

I told ya I was embracing the CAS style!  Here I am doing a SECOND card for the current challenge at Haunted Design House, "Bare Bones".  Have to say I was inspired the the totally fab and uber creepy portait of "Baby Jane" by Rick St Dennis, MFA that is available exclusively on his Blog HERE (on the left sidebar).  I had many a nightmare from watching that movie and as a nightmare inducing birthday is creeping up on my BFF from college I decided to make a little birthday card for her.  It's a one layer card done entirely with my Printmaster Platinum Program.  (Cool shadow effect on the number, eh?  I just found that.  Note to self; learn how to use what I have).

And inside?  HeeHee!  (At least I didn't say "look".)  I probably won't send it as that nightmare inducing birthday is coming up for me next year, but I sure got a kick out of making it.  Be sure to check out the second round of Bare Bones inspiration at Haunted Design House (scroll down to see last week's offerings in case you missed it) and come play along.  CAS means CLEAN AND SIMPLE, no bells and whistles, so they go together in a snap.  What's not to love?

I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Challenge.
