Bloggers' Challenge -- Halloween

It has been a long, long while....and I actually created this simple card for a previous challenge that took place a few weeks ago....it was a color challenge using Black, Orange, and White. I just never had the chance to download it and post. (As life returns to "normal" it is getting more and more hectic...and I've got to squeeze in about 2 hours of stretching exercises each day so my knee doesn't stiffen up too much....UGH! I just want this all to be behind me!!It's just over 3 months since I had my knee replaced.)

Anyway, I'm liking the simplicity of this card....and just in time for Halloween, but barely! And I had the opportunity to use this fun set, Batty for You once more before this holiday is over.....it's just so cute! I KNOW....Halloween isn't about cute, but I really don't like scary!
The images used for this card are stamped in Basic Black (left and right), and the center image was stamped in White Craft and embossed. See the little boogly eyes on the bat and spider? What you probably cannot tell is that the ghost image is raised on Dimensionals. They are all set against a scrap of older, long-retired Halloween-themed DSP. The black background was impressed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.
Thanks for stopping by and spending a bit of time with me today.....don't forget to check out what the other bloggers have been up to. You can see the list of participants here. And please be sure to come back to join in the Royal Blog Tour (November 5 thru 8)....and you really don't want to miss that....you'll be able to easily blog hop from blog to blog and see amazing ideas, and maybe even win a prize or two!

Have a fun and safe Halloween!
