Happy Halloween!

I think today is a perfect day to post this card.... ;)
 
 
I got this fabulous Zombie Beauty Queen image by Rick St Dennis a few weeks ago and was just dying (heee.. geddit? :D) to play with her. So the current Sweet or Spooky Hallowe'en challenge at Sparkle and Glitter the Rick St Dennis challenge blog was the perfect excuse!
 
 
 
I experimented a bit with this card and did a pop-up easel card. I really wanted the fab zombie figure to stand out from the card and an easel card seemed a good solution... but then I wanted even more dimension so I made a fold down tab from the easel section so she would stand proud of the card. :)
 
I made the backgrounds using Distress Inks in various shades of green and added detail with some cute and spooky halloween-themed Stampin' Up! stamps and a few doodled gravestones!
 
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

This is a great card! Quite a unique image, and I love how you colored up the background plus added the extra images. I almost missed the little frog (or is he a toad?) on the lower front panel. :) Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Alchemy!
