Dream Valley Challenge #18: Halloween

Good morning, it's that time again...a new Dream Valley Challenge! This time around, we want to see your projects based on the theme of Halloween. Show us your cards, layouts, altered items, jewelry...whatever, as long as it screams "Halloween," for a chance to win 5 images from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More!
I created this coffin card using papers and elements from the Scraptastic Club's October kit full of Echo Park and Authentique goodies. After layering the papers on the coffin, I chose the Authentique sentiment I wanted to use and matted it after distressing it with my Heidi Swapp distressing tool.
Don't you love these awesome papers? The jute came from a different kit, this kit had black and I wanted it to stand out so I used this brown.
Three of these awesome glittery spiders were in the kit, too. Love them!
I added some Glossy Accents for that extra "something" to the striped paper. Love the look of this stuff on just about any project! I also decided to add some dots around the card with my white gel pen.
That's it! Head on over to Dream Valley and enter your Halloween creation today for your chance at some great images.
