Halfway through October and it's no surprise that Halloween themes are in full swing (judging by some of the challenges I've been checking out, that is). This week I've combined the fantastic sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (courtesy of Linda) with a few other Halloween-themed challenges.
Originally I intended this card to be a shaker but once I started putting it together I realized that the bits from the shaker would take away from the cool bat so I nixed that idea. The bat and the sentiment are from an old Stampin' Up! set that I'm pretty sure I bought strictly because I loved both of them! It's one of those stamp sets that I'll never get rid of! The Paper Players are looking for CAS Spooky this week and CAS on Friday wants Halloween so I'm adding this card to both.
Thanks for stopping by! And don't forget our latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. Our design team has got some fantastic cards for your inspiration. I hope you'll join us in the gallery!
