batty for you (TAWS, RCC)

My BFF's little boy sent Flat Stanley to our house to see what life in Deutschland is like.  Here he is.

Figured I would make a card for his return to the US.  Wanted to replicate the "feel" of Stanley.  Can you say brightly colored?!?!?

Saw this inspiration photo at The Alley Way Stamps Challenge #13 and this freebie of theirs and had my idea.  Have you seen the Awesome Blossom set they have. So versatile and so my style.

So here's my card:

Printed the digital images onto kraft and colored paper.  Fussy cut.  And fussy cut.  And fussy cut.  Mixed up the colors of the bats a bit like those adorable little monsters in the inspiration photo and paper pieced them.  Some texture for the top of the card and a couple strips of kraft (stamped with zebra print that you can hardly see...) and PP also in honor of those little monsters.  I distress inked the edges of the card and bats and strips and swiped some Tea Dye across the dry embossing too.

I likey.  Thanks for stopping by.

Also playing over at The Ribbon Carousel #73 cuz this definitely has Halloween Spirit

Paper: cardbase Buttinette, kraft and colored ?, PP Basic Grey

Awesomeness. Flat Stanley will be in good company for his trip home. Love the row of battys and the embossed pattern up top. Great design. I think would fit at Simon Says too?
