The SKeleton in Armor

This is Halloween Month. I thought this dandy skeleton from Stampendous made a great focal image. The poem behind him is is a portion of "The Skeleton in Armor" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I am entering this card in three challenges: Cheery Lynn -- Halloween; Simon Says Stamp -- glimmer and sparkle; and Take a Word -- manuscript.
The die cuts are all from Cheery Lynn --chicken wire frame, lace corner deco H, and flourish leaf strip. On the spiderweb corner I added rock candy dry glitter and a bling spider. The script poem was sprayed with a heavy spray of dazzling diamonds glimmer mist both for the shimmer and for a bit of eeriness. And  for his eyes I added holographic rhinestones. What fun!
