Cricut Cardz Challenge #42

Hi Everybody!
SUPER excited to show you my design team card I made for challenge #42 over at Cricut Cardz Challenge.  This time the challenge was to make a Halloween card (best holiday ever!) using the card feature on any cartridge.  After flipping through a couple of the handbooks for ideas, I decided to use Tie the Knot, and Happy Hauntings.  Frankenstein is my favorite Halloween character, and I thought it would be cool to make a wedding invite for my two favorite ghouls!  Here's what I came up with:

*I used my Gypsy to lay this all out.  Card base and inside cut @ 4.25". 
*The card is from Tie the Knot (envelope on p. 72 using the invitation feature, the inside card on p.57 also using the invitation feature)
*The green patterned paper I used was white on the other side, and I wanted black, so I used the cut on p. 71 using the invitation feature and glued that to the inside back of the envelope (sorry, forgot to take a picture of that!)
*paper = DCWV shimmer pack, and My Mind's Eye
*fiber from my stash

*purple Stickles along the top of inside card, crystal Stickles on Frankie's neckbolt
*You can pull the inside out to write a message.

I put them close together so they could be holding hands! Awww, how ghoulishly romantic <3
*I used the Happy Hauntings cart. Frankie on p.30, and the bride on p.31.
*Frankie was cut @ 2.67", and the lovely bride was cut @ 2.55".

Thanks so much for looking, and don't forget to head over to the Cricut Cardz Challenge to enter your project!
