Nightmare Before Christmas in July

The fab girls over at The Burtonesque Dolls have an awesome challenge this week, The Nightmare Before Christmas in July! 
 I always love the challenges at the Burtonesque Dolls and this one was no different. Growing up this was (and maybe still is) my brothers favorite movie so we got to watch it alot. When the girls announced this challenge the movie cover instantly came to mind. I used a play on that for my card:
 I used all cardstock on this card. I cut the black hill by hand and inked the edges of the moon with a little mustard seed and mandarin Distress Ink. I cut the tree from my Doodlecharms cartridge and added some red bling for ornaments or lights.
 I stamped the tail of the witch on a halloween inkadoo stamp set onto the moon.
 When I was finished I sprayed the whole card with some black magic and silver sugar Glimmer Mist to give it a dark sparkle.
