All Wrapped Up for You!!

Hello everyone: Well, it's finally here.....HALLOWEEN!!!!!  and, since our challenge fell right on the very date we at SHOPPING OUR STASH want to see some spooky, frightening cards to start your stash for next year so, be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out what my teammates have there for your inspiration.  Here is my card, I hope you come and play with us in the gallery.

This spooky cat is from Whipper Snapper Designs and it's called Mummy Cat, when I bought this image some years ago, it came with the background moon, tomb stones, clouds and bats, now they just sell the kitty.
Anywho, I stamped it on water color paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat emboss it, then I colored with SU markers, I sponged some distress inks for the sky and I stamped more of the bats that came in the set. The big bat on the tomb stone is from Kraftin Kimmie as well as the ghosts, I stamped them onto Vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed them in white then, believe it or not, I fussy cut them and placed a small piece of double sided tape just at the end to prop them in my scene. Hope you can see they are transparent.  The ribbon and enamel dot are from my stash.

I always finish the inside of my cards, it saves a lot of time when I decide to mail them.

Sentiment is from my stash, the rest of the images from Kraftin Kimmie.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
