Batty for Halloween!

















So I have been on this total Halloween kick lately. I can't seem to get enough of it. I was supposed to make a card for a Bat Mitzvah I am going to with my daughter tomorrow but I wasn't feeling it. The lure of Halloween was calling me once again. I even set up my Halloween decor in my house today.

Believe or not both of these cards starting out with this sketch challenge from Beate. I took off in another direction from the sketch but that's what sketches are all about right? A starting point.

Stamps: Batty For You, Polka dot background stamp, Boo is from Autumn Apparitions
Ink: Old Olive, Eggplant Envy
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Eggplant Envy, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black
Other: Vintage brads, ribbon from District ribbon originals, small oval punch, photo corner punch, circle scallop punch, 1 1/4"circle punch, 1 3/8"circle punch, stampin' dimensionals, black hemp, prima flower

These cards are great!. I especially love the one with the flower -- that flower just JUMPS off the card -- so beautiful.
