Batty For You

Morning Bloggers and  Happy Hump Day!!!
I am back with another 
Halloween card that I made to enter into a few challenges.
~But before we move on I want to to share a little background info....
I was recently introduced to
by my bloggy buddy and EAD Designs DT sister
Rose over at
who has made some super adorable cards using these fun whimsical stamps.
Here and Here are some of the cards she has made.
So when I popped over to their site I found a bunch of freebies that I downloaded
which can be found HERE
and started creating with them.
 My Christmas card I made for Creative Inspirations Paint this past Sunday used 
 those cute Christmas trees and sentiment
and for today's card I used the adorable 
Bat and Bat sentiment
Here is what I came up with using this as my inspiration...
~I know a bat image to the pumpkin did that inspire you 
well when I think of bats...I think of pumpkins
which has to all do with Halloween right??
~I used the orange from the picture in my bat image as well as on the card
So what do you think??
The card is from Lori Whitlock~
that I purchased though the Silhouette Store
and using the Design Studio
I removed the bat from the file and imported 
colored him in the program and used the Print and Cut feature 
to cut him out.
I traced just the outside of another bat the same size 
and in the spot the original bat from the file was,
I welded him.
So when I attached the colored digi
he was reinforced by his shadow right behind him
Here is the whole card with the insert pulled out.
For the sentiment...also from
I imported it into the design studio, and placed it on the card where I wanted it.
I printed the image out on my computer
then cut the card out.
Then using a border cut I added some extra design to give the front of the card 
some color.
So what do you think???
Didn't it turn out adorable???
I LOVE these whimsical stamps and plan on picking up a set or two really soon
only problem is....which one to pick??
They are all sooooo cute!!

Thanks so much for stopping by
