Hello and welcome to the 6th day of SMUDGEFEST.

Today we had a sketch to use:

Here is my Take:

Card stock by STAMPIN' UP, Printed paper by Die CUTS WITH A VIEW (DCWV), 7GYPYS, and Matte Metallic scrap from an envelope. Tim Holtz's Distress Inks by RANGER, Border punch and embosser by MARTHA STEWART, Enamel Accents by RANGER, Bat Skeleton Digi by SMEARED INK, loose vellum bones by MARTHA STEWART, Large eyelets by WE ARE MEMORY KEEPERS, Sentiment  computer generated with Scrapbones font by SCRAPnFONTS.

I border punched the front edge of the CS and then attached a piece of the green scrollwork paper behind it and to the same edge as the back of the card, then distressed it  and the card front edges with Black Soot.
The Bat skelly image is actually on white card stock, it was covered with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.
I hope you like it :)

Awesome job!!! I really enjoy your theme and your color choices are great! Sounds like you're "smudging" up a storm!
Also, Thanks ever so much for spotting the download error and then alerting me to its presence. It's now up and rolling for you the correct way.
