Simply Betty 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

For the Smeared Ink 12 Days of Christmas - Day 3, scroll down one post.

Hello, all! It's Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas over at Simply Betty! Today's challenge is to use a spooky tree in your creation.

Here is the challenge description: (to view it over at Simply Betty's and check out the DT's creations, click here)

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...

You all know that Christmas Carol right?

Well here in SBS land we follow the Nightmare Before Christmas SCAROLS instead!

So today we have a song inspired challenge for you...

Old Mansion Tree.. it goes something like this...

“Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

Your leaves are sharp and Prickly

Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

You bring a gloom that’s sickly!”

Your branches droop with moldy care

Your smell of mildew fills the air

Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

You clear the room so quickly!

Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

Oh how we decorate you

Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

With ornaments we weigh you

Your limbs and limp with bats and bows

Your tinsel tarnished years ago

Old Mansion Tree, Old Mansion Tree

A fire place awaits you!”

Pretty fun yeah? I love singing this Christmas Scarol during the Halloween/Christmas season at Disneyland, they play it outside of the ride as guests wait to get into the Haunted Mansion that is all decked out with Nightmare Before Christmas!

You are challenged to create a project with a Scary Christmas tree!

Adorn it with spiders, bats, and pumpkins!

 Here is what I created for this challenge:

Christmas Card. I used the same Simply Betty Stamp as I did for the card in the post below, but colored her differently. I gave her a black tree to decorate. I used some papers I bought from Simply Betty's Shop in a kit. I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to make metal stitches around the card, to give it an edgier feel. The little piece of red ribbon just gives this card that extra pop of red.
