Spooky Cute Zombies

Hello everyone out there in blogland!! I hope everyone
is havinga fabulous weekend so far!  Fall is definitely in the air
and it is my favorite time of year.  Halloween is the theme for
 this post.

  I've been working very hard to get this card done in time for some really fun
challenges.  I've been wanting to use these Zombie digis forever and
now is my chance!!  Yay!!  I'm not one of those people who is crazy over
zombies but these guys are just so cute.  I have a lot of friends who are
big fans of the show The Walking Dead so this is for them!!  I, unfortunately,
have nightmares pretty easily so watching that show is out of the question for me!!

This is a pic with the iron gate semi-closed.

I made the "Ghoulish Greetings" sign hanging on the iron gate by using my writer
tool that engraves into metal. I then added a little white paint into the grooves.
Several  jump rings make the chain and I hooked it through the gate.

The flowers are from my stash.  The paper vine is from La-La Land Crafts 
and is called spooky vines.  I had a plastic skeleton that I broke apart  
and stuffed into the flowers and above Zombie girls head to give
the appearance they are creeping out of parts of the card.  
Spooky!  A little spider web and some rhinestone spiders
are crawling on the gate.  (look hard and you will see them!)

Another arm reaching out from behind....
You can see one of the rhinestone spiders there too.

This pic and the next are with the iron gate opened.  I added moss to 
the graveyard ground.

The drippy blood edger and bloody letters are from Martha Stewart Crafts.

Copics I used.

The zombies are Saturated Canary designs again!!  I know.... shocker, right?
I just can't help myself though.  I just love all of Krista Smiths stuff!
The girl is called Zombie Niamh and she is mounted on a wobble
so she has a cute little "shake" she does when you hold this card.
The boy is Zombie Philly

The graveyard is from Make It Crafty.  (I only used part of this background
stamp).  The house and the iron gate fence I cut out with my cricut. 
The flowers, ribbon, and other accessories were from my own
stash.  Papers are Authentique.

This is the photo inspiration for the current challenge over at 
Saturated Canary:
