      Card in a Box

        A friend of mine asked me to make a card for her niece. She wanted it for her birthday/Halloween but with a Halloween theme because her birthday is on Halloween. Also she wanted a hidden place to hide money in it, so I added a pocket on the inside of the back wall of this card.You can't see it though. This is what I came up with:

 Cardstock and Pattern Paper- From my stash
Haunted House- Create A Critter 2 Cartridge
Ghost- were on some Halloween cardstock that
I cut out 
Bats- Stickers from Michaels

Challenges Entered:
 Die Cuttin Diva's - Anything Goes
Decorate to Celebrate - Anything Goes

Would love to hear your comments
