Twelve Days of Halloween - Day 4

If you're interested please scroll down for my Magnolia Down Under Challenges card posted earlier today!


Ooops - It's been a crazy weekend and I nearly forgot to post my card for the Fourth Day of the Twelve Days of Halloween - that wouldn't have helped anyone out would it - LOL. For all the ongoing information about the competition and prizes check out the Simply Betty Challenges blog HERE. Me and the rest of the gals from  The Burtonesque Dolls are helping out our neighbours with this one in place of our regular challenges.

On the 4th day of Halloween my ghoul love gave to me four crazy Ravens

... incorporate Ravens and this line from Vincent...

"His voice was soft and very slow As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted? Nevermore…” "

I used a Memory Box DP and cut a raven on a fence out using my craft robo. I added some texture to the bottom of the fence with one of my Tim Holtz embossing folders. The quote was printed out using my computer and then I just distressed it a little with some ink and my thumbnail. I used the gorgeous boy from the "Sweet and Toxic" set from The Greeting Farm - I liked the fact that he has wings - it ties him in to the theme of birds and ravens!
