Bride of Halloween

I love Halloween so much I wish I could marry it.
Actually, it is kind of my mistress 357 days a year.
Never far from my mind, or heart.

I made this card for my niece who loves Halloween and scary stuff 
just like her Auntie Glo. And her birthday is in October so she usually
scores some cool presents. 

I colored up this fabulous Halloween Vampire Bride from Faery Ink. 
This was the very first image I purchased from Faery Ink, but not the last. 
I love how she really pops against the gray of the card.
And who wouldn't love a Halloween themed veil? If I had it to do all over
again, I'd go with a Victorian Halloween wedding. Maybe not so literal on the 
veil adornments, but still undoubtedly Halloween.

I used various die cuts like the fence, the glittery bats, and the tag
for a bit more interest. This lady could have pulled off the card by herself,
but I wanted to add more goodies. I have a ton that don't get used all
that often. Yep, a ton. At least. I'm not proud of it.    

Thanks for dropping by today.
I'll be back tomorrow with a double post. No, really. 
Feast or famine around here. 
October is the month of harvest and feasting, so eat up!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
