Happy BOOthday...

This is my nephew's card, which we will deliver with his birthday gift today (TWO MONTHS LATE!) when we go over to make gingerbread houses with all the cousins (ages 5 to 21 years--it's amazing how well they all get on!).
His birthday was in October, so a spooky themed card seemed appropriate. Plus he and his male cousins are always ridding the world of zombies and other undesirables...
I saw a similar card on the web earlier this season, but the torn wrappings fit this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge sketch so well:
I used CTMH champagne and black cardstock, saddle pigment ink to smudge the edges and googly eyes purchased at Michael's.

Happy holiday prep, everyone!
