Bats, Cats and Birthday Hats ~ABC Challenge~

Bats, Cats and Birthday Hats

Like you all didn't have enough of my silliness yesterday...I get to post again today! LOL! Today is the 15th which is the second post day for ABC Challenges and our second from the's challenge...B is for Boo! 
But thank you allll for participating in our first challenge back...450+ of you! Wow! That was some blog hopping on my part! LOL!

I created this darling shaped card from the Mini Monsters cartridge. So the caldron is the base card. I cut a few layers so that I could do different colors, like for the belly of the caldron. The monster is also from Mini Monsters. 

The opening on the card was cut separately and embossed with a CB spider web folder, then inked with with metallic silver. The sticker letters are by Bo Bunny and were covered in Picket Fence Distress Stickles. The small bat is a Cuttlebug die. And very random ribbon pieces from my stash. LOL!

Here's a look at the card open. I used the monster but added another square onto the bottom of the monster to elongate it to use as a tag. It fits into the caldron rather nicely! I did some stamping using a text stamp for the inside of the card flap (and the back of the card). Polka Dots on the monster as well...with the rest of the greeting.

This was such a fun project to put together! This is going to be a birthday card for my niece who's birthday is a couple days before Halloween. Too fun!

Thanks for coming by...I've been posting lots of Halloween lately, haven't I? LOL! Don't forget to stop by ABC and see what the other gals have done! And check out our sponsor and the prize pack from...
