Batty for You!!!!!

Hello everybody: This post is SUPER LATE!!!!! Been having mayor Internet troubles, this time it's NOT my computer, it's the darn WEB, 😡 Goodness!!! when it works it's awesome, when it's not.....well, you want to pull your hair out, there is literally nothing you can do but wait. I did found out there were doing some repairs outside my subdivision, ughhhh!!
Anywho, I have another card I made with that FANTABULOUS and sadly retired Stampin' Up! set called "Best Friends", that came out back in 2006, way before I started stamping.
I saw a card on Pinterest and I fell head over heels in love with this awesome Halloween images.
So here is this card that I will link to a few challenges at the end of this post.


Ok, see what I mean? Mr. Dracula here is looking totally awesome, all dressed up for, what it looks like a date?? He even has a "beautiful" bouquet of eyeballs to sweep someone off her feet, oh my goodness!! I placed a googly eye on each of this eyeballs, sooooo much fun.
I just stamped this image on Strathmore Mixed Media paper and colored it with some SU markers and Sakura Koi watercolors. The background is done with a very batty stamp which is perfect for this card, I added a bit of ribbon and a sentiment from my stash.
This guy needs nothing else.

***********************************************************************
Here is a picture of the finished inside of this card, I've been finishing the inside of every card I make, it saves me a lot of time when I mail them.


The sentiment and hanging eyeballs are from the retired SU set called "Jar of Haunts", I just placed it on the MISTI and went over these two eyeballs with a black SU marker.

I'm entering this card onto the following challenges.

Deep Ocean Challenge #166 "Halloween"
