Jack-o-lantern in a Window Card


Just wanted to show my latest make:

I created a shadow box to give a dimensional look into the window and Jack-o-lantern peaking through it.

I used crackle paint on the shutters to give it old and creepy look...

I recycled plastic cover for Cricut mat to create illusion of the glass window and egg carton for bricks around the window.

I made a flower container and added some moss and little blue flowers. Behind the window, you can see old looking drapes, made with cheese cloth that I pained with black Dilysions spray and Jack-o-lantern distressed with some black and brown ink.

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:
