A Christmas Nightmare?

So the challenge this month at From Screen 2 Scrap seems simple enough at first glance. Here's the poster:


Added criteria for an extra 7 Bonus Points
Must have a minimum of three items used from the list,
use all items and receive a bonus 3 pts = 10 pts max
Note: Each item is worth 1pt

1. Pumpkin/s
2. Large moon
3. Jack - Skeleton
4. Spooky tree
5. Fence
6. Yellow/purple colors
7. Large Swirl

 

So this is the funny little card I whipped up after deliberating long and hard just how I was going to get the perfect mix of Halloween and Christmas. I did manage to get 5 out of the 7 extra criteria covered.


I'm not sure what colour the card is anymore!
I swear I used a very vibrant purple Smooch Spritz, and I know it's yellow cardstock which will change the colour a bit, but between the time I made it and the time I photographed it - it seems to have faded into this funny grey colour!!


I couldn't help but add a splash of bright red..... especially when it comes in reindeer form. We don't do Santa at our house so I tend to shy away from images of Santa on my Christmas crafts. But I still can't seem to go past reindeer. I love them!!

Hope to see you over at From Screen 2 Scrap joining in the challenge :-)
