A Little Bit Batty

      Yes, I know it's only the fourth Friday in July and, yes, this is a Halloween card!  I've been doing Christmas all month long so I thought I'd throw in something a bit unexpected.  Actually, this is a perfect card for the new theme in our latest challenge at QKR Stampede, "Up, Up, and Away."


     The image is Digi 16309 "Blind Bat" and the sentiment is Digi 8902 "Happy Halloween."  I colored both of those with my ProMarkers and fussy cut them.  The bat is mounted onto foam dots for some dimension.

     The moon was cut from harvest gold CS using a stitched circle die which has the stitching both inside and outside the circle.  I used the same die to cut the background purple CS, then inset the gold moon into it.  I think stitched dies have become my favorite "go to" dies, but then, using dies is my favorite thing to do on cards anyway.  I used two different gray ProMarkers to make the shadows on the moon.

     For embellishment, I added a black bow and three little silver/gray pearls.  A very CAS design which works to showcase the image.

     That's all I have today and I hope we're going to see you playing along in our "Up, Up, and Away" challenge this week,  Just use anything that goes up into the sky -- the possibilities are endless.  While there's no requirement that you use an image from QKR, if you do, your card will be entered into a separate drawing just for QKR Stampede users and that really increases your chances of being a winner.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
