{Creepy Lane}

I'm still being inspired by the Halloween papers that are sitting out on my desk and couldn't resist making another card using this Mojo Monday Sketch:
 I'm cutting it close to enter...only 4 hours left. If you would like to see more inspiration for the sketch you can see it all here: http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2012/07/mojo-monday-249.html
Here is my little creation:

 I had such fun making my focal point. I just kept coming up with things I could add to the creepy little scene.
 I started with the wrought iron fence stamp which is from Inkadinkado. I stamped it on white CS using Versa Mark watermark ink then embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder. I used Peeled Paint Distress ink for grass on the bottom and then inked the entire white CS with Pumice Stone Distress ink. The edges are inked with Black Soot then deciding it wouldn't show up against the black mat I inked the edges with white ink from Color Box. I also inked the black CS mat with  white ink.

 I used a Creative Memories punch for the ghost, black cat and pumpkin. I inked all of the edges with black or white ink and added eyes and mouth to the ghost. The Happy Halloween sentiment is stamped onto black CS with Versa Mark watermark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I decided a big yellow moon would add a nice touch and used the 1 1/2" circle punch from Creative Memories to punch the circle then put it halfway in the punch and punched it again to make it a crescent moon. I layered the sentiment banner over the moon and decided to add the ghost to the banner.
 I used foam adhesive on the pumpkin and the cat on the fence. I found the yellow gemstone star that has been stuck on my desk from a project several weeks ago and decided it would be the perfect finishing touch to the spooky little scene. I thought about trying to find another star but decided that it might be too much and the one star would be enough.
I know I am a bit early with the Halloween cards but I enjoy making them and several have left comments that Halloween is their favorite holiday to make cards for.
What is your favorite holiday to create cards for?
