The Last of Halloween Posts

I've been playing along all month with challenges on Flying-Unicorn
With this one you had to make a card about a scary movie. I choose The Black Swan.
That movie still gives me the heebie jeebies.

For this challenge you had to use gauze somewhere on your art piece.
I made another chunky atc with a little gauze ghost on top.

This was a altered tin I did for Alpha Stamps
using the not so scary collage images

Inside of tin, with the poem about finding your True Love
 on Halloween night when you look into a mirror at the stroke of midnight.

and right now theres a Great giveaway going on at Alpha stamps
Heres what you can win

I'm linking these for the challenge on Gingersnap Creations- Horror Stories

Have a Safe and Happy Halloween !!1

The filigree came from my friend Vada.
The leaves,twigs,frog,spider,feathers all from Debbie. I added some bling
and a lot of hot glue!!!

Next picture not for the faint a heart.
I'm warning you if you don't have a strong stomach turn back now!
