I'm going batty...

Good morning and happy Thursday! I have a card to share with you that I'm entering for the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #167. I haven't participated in this challenge for awhile and really wanted to take a stab at it again.

the inside:

and the sketch:

It's amazing how my card comes together...once I figure out what paper to use. I swear I had this done within a half hour, but spent probably over an hour trying to figure out 1) which Halloween collection to start with and 2) which papers in that line to use! Grrrr! I did some more embossing on this card (and tried really hard to take a picture so that the embossing didn't reflect the light and show up usual.)

Thanks for stopping by, and if you haven't already, try this challenge! Have a great day!

Chris ☺

  3. Love this!! The circle looks very stone-like and the border is great! Reminds me of a wrought iron fence. Love how you did the inside.
