Pilin' on the Scenery

This week at Pile It On our challenge is to Create a Scene. We're sponsored by Beyond the Fringe Crafts. I've been a fan of this fun site run by Carmen for several years; she has many wonderful images in her Etsy shop, and also provides lots of freebies on her blog.
Her Wonky Silhouette Cityscape digi stamp has been a favorite of mine for some time and this idea just popped into my head:

I converted the from Beyond the Fringe Crafts digi stamp into a cut file and a black-out version SCAL and cut them on my Silhouette Cameo. The blackout (windows) is a shiny black paper, and the cut-out version is heat-embossed in black. The spooky crows are cut from the Birds on a Wire die from Spellbinders, and were also heat-embossed in black. All the patterned papers, including the die-cut fence, are Graphic 45 papers. The "Boo" tag is a fairly heavy Stone Sticker from EK success, and I added some black embroidery thread to it as if it were hanging from the fence.

I backed the scene with a black tulle-covered orange card base. I used a scalloped die for the inside message section. I added a Halloween poem stamp, a corner spiderweb stamp, and a couple of extra blackbirds.
