The Batty Witch

10/28/2019 Update: This card is a Top Pick at the Crafting Happiness Challenge #19.

Welcome to my blog! Halloween is almost here. I have never considered it an important holiday but it seems that in the world of paper crafting it is very popular. Over at the Double Trouble Blog, the biweekly Challenge #41 is in full swing. We are partnering with Crafting Happiness. Our challenge began today, Monday, October 21, and will end on Sunday, November 3, 2019. Our partner has two weekly challenges during this time. Their Challenge #19 begins Monday, October 21, 2019, and Challenge #20 begins October 28, 2019. To play along with them, I have made two cards. This is the card for the first week (#19). To view my card for the second week, click HERE.

Here are the requirements for Double Trouble:
Thing 1: (required) Use at least three colors from their list posted on the challenge blog.
Thing 2: (optional) Partner with Crafting Happiness Challenge #19 (Halloween colors theme) and/or #20 (Halloween theme).
Thing 3: (optional) Include something that flies.

The image was stamped, colored and fussy cut. Onto a black card base, two panels of patterned paper were adhered. The image was adhered using foam tape. The bat was also adhered. The inside was lined with white cardstock, then stamped with "Trick or Treat" and decorated with a cute pumpkin left from another project.
Be sure to visit the challenge blogs for DTC #41 and Crafting Happiness for guidelines to play along with us.
