Big Halloween Blast at AAA Cards!

Halloween blends into Day of the Dead in Tucson. Right after Halloween the celebration of "de los Muertos" will party in a huge downtown parade. It so neat! Everyone is invited to march along in costume. Most popular of the costumes is the dead bride and groom couples. Those folks go WAY over the top with the look. Check this out:

let's not forget those Sugar skulls

We are looking forward to this years parade. My card was inspired by the festive sugar skulls. This holiday is about honoring those beloved who have departed and it's not meant to be scary at all!

The design is from clip art. I had a ball using all my stickle glitters! I rarely use markers but they were perfect for this look. I cut out the skull and pop taped onto a chalk distressed background. More shine is added with sequins. It's so loud I can hear it!

So, AAA CAS Card Challenges is throwing a 
and you could win a Thanksgiving Guest spot to boot! 
Drop by and leave a wild and fun Halloween card, we'd love to see you there.

Here's our game image, be sure to place it somewhere in your card post. I made these little guys 2 years ago. If you'd like to see more photos of them click here. 

Happy Card Making!
