This was such a fun challenge this week.  I played a bit fast and loose with the challenge, making Frankenstein instead of a traditional tag but I just couldn't help myself.  Our twist this week is Halloween.  I don't have any Mark's Finest Papers Halloween images so I decided to play with sentiments.  The "Friend" came from the Winter Crocuses set.  The "Good was a mash up of 3 words.  The "G" is from a birthday set.  The "oo"'s are from Country Charm and the "d" is from "Dogwood Blossoms."  Normally I wouldn't mash fonts like this but for Frankenstein, it just works.

Frankenstein is made with a Label Nestie and I then fussy cut the hair.  The nose is a leaf die that I then distressed the edges.  I hand drew the mouth and added googlie eyes.  The idea is not an original.  I've seen hand-created Frankenstein's on Splitcoaststampers in the past.

I just love that this is a fun card without any scare factor.  I am thinking of saving this for the neighbours who have small children.  Who can be scared of this face?
