The Dry Bone Birthday Boogie!

Happy October everyone!  It actually SNOWED here in the rocky mountains last night and the mountains are lightly dusted with snow.  But BRRRR our temperature has dropped from the 80's last week to the 40's and 50's this week!!! I had to run outside and gather the rest of my tomatoes off the vine before they froze!  Crazy huh!  I finally got a couple of  Halloween inspired cards done.  It is so fun to work with the Halloween inspired papers!  Here is the first one:



The cute skeletons are a border from a Recollections Halloween paper.  The background is purple behind them, but it photographed kind of blue.  I used twine in charcoal, mandarin and lilac; Ink in midnight black; orange grosgrain ribbon to edge the skeletons; papers from Recollections, Paper Pizazz and Coredinations; Heidi Grace buttons and my own computer digi's for the sentiment.
This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Thanks for dropping in and another Halloween card is coming right up!  Come Follow and lets get to know each other!
