October 31st Spooky Card

Hi There!

Okay so it's not really Oct. 31st like my title says but it sure is coming fast. We usually have costumes made or at least ordered but we are so behind this year. My 10 year old decided on "Buddy the elf" isn't that funny? If you haven't seen the movie, it's a pretty silly movie but kids like it.
Today, I created a spooky Halloween card and I just LOVE how it turned out! I have been wanting to play in some challenges and linky parties but just have not had the time. 

I started with some very old Halloween paper (I think DCWV) and used a circle die. I cut an additional circle die in yellow and inked it up and placed it in the center.  Next I used MCT cartoon cloud dies and cut them in grey and inked them up too. 

I added some fun little bats from the Wicked-Fun-Dies-set and stamped a spooky sentiment.
I wish I had more of this paper to create another card :( my new goal is to use my paper that I have been saving forever.... I know you save paper right??? you know because someday you'll need it... or maybe you just LOVE it... or maybe you buy like 3 or 4 paper pads because you NEED to have extra... Wait was this just a confession? Noooo, I'm not talking about me.... I'm talking about my friend, yeah that's it... my friend - HAHAHA

Have a GREAT day everyone!
