What's New Wednesday - a little Halloween

Helloooooo - echo echo echo echo - helllloooooo :-)

Well, my apologies for not being around much!  I really have not been in the mood for some reason and found it difficult to even approach the craft room.

But today, I grabbed the bull by the horns and went in.  Albeit not for long but played with some new Paper Bundles from Polkadoodles and came up with this little card.

I have used Halloween/Autumn Paper Heaven 1 - Digital Download Bundle.

All my papers were from these bundles and then I used the haunted house from the wonderful Spooky Sentiments - Digital download bundle.

The little bats are from the Witchie Witchie 2013 Download bundle, cut out on my Cameo.

I used a recent sketch from Mojo Monday for my card layout.  I added little eyes to the bats with a white gel pen.

For the inside, using the same papers and a little bat on the message panel.

I love the papers on these mini collections they are fabulous.  The sentiment is also from the Spooky Sentiments - Digital Download bundle.

A really quick Halloween card.  All the edges of all the layers were inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
