Happy Halloween card for 3 challenges

Here are the challenges that I created this card for.

Midnight Madness #24
Stamp Something-Halloween Something
Stampin' for the Weekend #21-A Haunting Good Time

When I was trying to think of a Halloween card, I remembered seeing a raven template in a Stampers Sampler magazine. I used it as a template, cut it out, ran it through the Cuttlebug and added a google eye. The papers are My Minds Eye. The saying is a stamped by Queen Kat Design. The frames, spooky tag and spider web corners are from Memory Makers. I added orange bling. The Raven by Edgar Alan Poe is my favorite spooky Halloween poem! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Fab card, that bird certainly does look spooky. Love all the detail on your card. Jillix

  2. You are just too creative!! I love the cut out raven. Your colors and the use of the sketch for the layout!! Great combo of challenges!! The papers you used are perfect. Great take on the sketch Julia!

  3. Julia, all those spooky elements you have added to the card, cobwebs, haunted house, etc. are so great. Love the dark colors and that crow!!!!!!!!!Wow.

  4. The first thing I thought of when I saw your card was the chiller The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock, but I got the wrong bird. Those were Crows and yours is a spooky Raven, but same effect anyway. Thanks for joining SFTW, good luck
    Happy crafting
