Another halloween birthday

This was another commissioned 8 x 8 card that I actually made for last year, but didn't blog ... the occasion came and went and I was too late. I was asked to make birthday cards for two twins (grown up) for 31 October. This is the second one I made:

I built up the background scene digitally, adding the sentiment and printing, with other pieces added from stash and Paperhouse production 3D stickers.

I don't celebrate halloween and only make cards when requested. I need to make them again this year for these twins, so I'm having to think of other designs.
