Happy Saturday everyone!!!!

I have, what I think, is a cute Halloween Home Decor item to show you.  It started with a $5.00 frame from Walmart. I removed the glass. I took out the matt and inked it with Tim Holtz alcohol ink in pitch black using a Tim Holtz inker.  When the ink dried I trimmed the matt with patterned paper and a border sticker.  I then backed it with patterned paper and a Martha Stewart border punch. The letters and skeleton frame were cut with the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge, the lettters at 3" and the frame at 4".
Added some embellishments  and voila!!!!!

Supplies used: cardstock - black, 2 shades of grey; patterned papers - Skull & Bones, Striped Toad, Black Magic, Haunted Forest and Catatonic all in The Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park; border sticker - Element Stickers in The Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park; rhinestones - American Crafts & Doodlebug; border punch - Martha Stewart; velvet stickers - Making Memories; Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge; ribbon, googly eyes - Michaels; Pop Dots
