A scary invitation

Well, I don't ordinarily enjoy scary or creepy images.  But the idea for this digi stamp has been on my mind since last Halloween.  This year I finally got it sketched out and it really was fun to create with.  

Shelly's Images "Grave Invitation" set comes with several files to give you lots of designing options.  For my card I chose to use the "Dare" version.  Be sure to stop by Shelly's Images Blog to see the creations by the other talented DT members.  And we hope you will enter a project for our challenge which begins today.  We have a super fun "Tic Tac Toe" challenge.  My project uses a punch or die, ribbon, and the free space.

For the card base
This card is made to fit an A6 envelope.
The card base measures 9" wide by 6 1/4" tall from black cardstock
Score at 2 1/4 and 6 3/4
The gate measures 4 1/2 wide
I cut the gate on the blackout setting for the patterned paper behind the gate.
The sentiment is printed and then cut out with Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles 
(2nd from smallest size and then cut again to reduce the size a little more.)
