Haunted Design House Challenge 170

The  Haunted Design House  (HDH) has one of the hardest challenges for me yet.  This one took a lot of time and thought to do.  Maybe it was the number, who knows!

Challenge 170 - Unlucky For Some
Here are the House rules:
"You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en 
based art piece with a total of thirteen components.
No more. No less. Thirteen pieces total.
If you make a card, the base counts as one. If you use multiple 
dps, they each count as one. If you use six brads,  they count as six. Catch my drift?"

For this challenge I was so glad to have such great inspiration and lights at the end of the tunnel.  Go and see what the talented Design Team over at HDH has created for this challenge, HERE and HERE.
I have finally finished my entry, on the last day of course!  Listed below my card, Under The Sea, are the 13 items I used. 

13 ITEMS used to make my card:
Whisper White cardstock (cs) - Base
Elegant Eggplant cs - Matte/frame
Watercolor Paper - main front

Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink Pad
Aqua Painter

Versa Mark Ink Pad
White Embossing Powder
Heat Gun - I counted this as an item because I had to melt the embossing powder.  So, heat was used on the card.
Octopet - stamp 

Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
Crystal Effects -  only on main Octopet
2 - Pearl Jewels - medium for eyes
