Batty Halloween

Can you believe it? Halloween is almost here - where did the summer go! Oh wait, I for one am so glad summer is almost over. Too hot and way too humid for this girl!

Halloween is one of my favorite crafting holidays which means I had to color up this hauntingly big eyed beauty from Plate #155 - ©Terra Bidlespacher's Halloween:

The only problem with this fun crafting holiday is that I have loads of papers from previous years left over but it's not the paper that makes the card. It's definitely this cute big eyed girl.

She is colored with Copics, then die cut with Spellbinders large oval die. I added the pom-pom ribbon around the edges using glue.
Adhered with 1/4" dimensional foam to compensate for the dimension of the pom-pom ribbon.

The little bats are punched with a Martha Stewart bat punch and the black embossed panel was embossed with the Haunted Halloween embossing folder. I used a Versamark pad and lightly rubbed it over the raised areas, then adding some Perfect Pearls with a brush - just to add a little shimmer. The sentiment is also from Plate #155 although I should have used the other sentiment that comes with this plate. But for now, I'll leave it as is.

Fun, fun card .... if you haven't played with the gorgeous halloween stamps from Sweet Pea Stamps..... you're missing out.
