R.I.P. Halloween card (with an unexpected BONUS)

I am super excited to bring to you this Spooky Halloween card I made last night when I couldn't sleep at 2:00am.  All week long I had been pondering the idea of what I was going to make for the Macabre Monday Challenge HDH #149 - Bare Bones.  The challege requires you to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece that uses NO dimensional embellishments.  No rhinestones, no pearls, no ribbon, and no chipboard.  It doesn't have to be a single layer card, just NO bumpy bits!

I started to go through my stash of stickers and found some awesome Halloween rub-ons that I've had for a couple of years now.  I bought them from Michael's during one of their after Halloween clearance sales for just .19 cents. marked down from .99 cents.  The BONUS though is I didn't even know this, but they GLOW IN THE DARK!!! Check it out below.

I used these items to create this card:
  • Black, lime green and white cardstock
  • EZ Rub Ons - skull, arm, tombstomes, moon, and bats
  • glow-in-the-dark craft paint - stars (which I painted and hand cut)
  • misc. clear Halloween stamps - inside
Here's a look at the inside of the card:
