Halloween card

I created this card back in February/March and had submitted it along with the treat holder that got published in the current issue of Paper Crafts.
This one didn't make the cut, but I LOVE this card even so!  ♥
I used the now retired Mischief B&T papers, and "Halloween" is from the retired Wicked stamp set.
I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the circle and the decorative circle cardstock pieces, as well as the numbers (if I remember correctly).
The bats are from a Martha Stewart punch, and the edge along the right side was done with a die from MFT.

I used the same technique for the flying bats on this card that I used on my treat holder from  yesterday's post.  I simply cut strips from a transparency sheet at different lengths and attached the bats to the ends to have them appear to be flying.
Happy creating!  :)

I love it too! PaperCrafts messed up by not including this beauty! It is so elegant, yet so spooky.
