Dark and Dreary for Mojo Monday.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you for  Mojo Monday this week that has a great sketch by Julee Tilman, here is my card.
I made this card using a really fabulous but sadly retired Stampin Up! set called "Dark and Dreary", there is nothing cute or adorable in this set, the images really give meaning to the name. But non the less, they are beautiful, specially this black Raven, which reminds me of that Edgar Allan Poe poem, gives me the chills.
I didn't think of adding anything to this card except the glittery orange brad and that punched out "BOO", no water coloring this time, only a sponged background around the image, which I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Ninah Solar White paper and then I punched it out with SU Scalloped Tag Topper.
The pattern paper is from Stamping up, but it's really old and I forgot to which collection it belongs to.  Here is the banner that inspired this card.This is all for today, thank you very much for visiting, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
