Haunting with Horace.....

Hello everyone: I'm so getting in the mood for Halloween so I'm making a few more cards for my stash to send out to family and friends, near and far.
I'm linking this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This handsome fella is a NBUS stamp from Kraftin Kimmie, I don't know why I haven't used it before, he is quite a looker, all dressed up and ready for some haunting fun.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and colored with my SU markers.
The pattern paper is from my Halloween stash, the bats are die cut but I don't know where the die came from, might be from Cherry Lynn. I added a bit of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Diamonds for the eyes, hope you can see it.

This is a picture of the finished inside of my card. It's not a second card, just wanted to make sure to clarify this because of the challenges I'm entering.

The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and the black cat and spider web are from a retired SU set called "Bite Me"
I'm linking this card to the following challenges.

Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #180 "Boo/Halloween or Autumn Thank You"
Crafty Sentiments Designs "Halloween/Fall Challenge"
Tiddly Inks Challenge #206 "SpookaBoo!"
Try it on Tuesday "It's Halloween Time"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
