I have gone...

A LITTLE BATTY!

Just sharing a little card, sharing some GOOD NEWS also!

First the card:
I made a 4.25" x 5.5"  black card that opens from the bottom, I printed out the digi image (Robyn's Fetish) to the 4.25" wide, trimmed it close, and glued it to the top of the card. I then cut along the bat's bottom trimmed lin e from the front pat of the card, and along most of the top leaving enough of the fold in the center. I then attached the printed paper from underneath just shy of the fold.
Card stock and markers: STAMPIN' UP
Border punch: E K SUCCESS
Printed paper: Authentique- "Glowing"
Misc: plastic Bat and spider rings that I cut the ring part off. Sakura glaze pen in black. Computer generated sentiment...the inside says "go a little batty!"

I went over all the lines of the bat with the glaze pen, generously. When dry I filled in the body with "Cajun Craze" the head with  "Dusty Durango" and the wings with "Early Espresso" the 2 orangey shades were the best match to the orange in the paper which is actually kind of a red-orange. I scanned the card, and for some reason it came out crooked, when it was definitely in the scanner straight. UGH!

(My monitor is on it's way out so my lighting is going to be off FOR ME for a while, so I hope I am not making it too bright for you to see it correctly)
