12 Tags of 2015 / Holiday Card Series - October Inspiration

Hi friends! My collection of Holiday cards is growing and it's very fun that they're all so different. Our next card is from the October 12 Tags of 2015. I have been a fan of the wrinkle free distress techniques since Tim showed it many years ago. It's still a big favorite of mine. I use it over and over again and the results are always amazing!

I know this isn't a zombie but these wings and tree are very dimensional just like the zombie. I just didn't think a santa hat would make the zombie look Christmassy enough. lol
