Cute Daisy May - Halloween

The start of another week and another challenge at Cute Daisy May. The theme this week is Halloween. I don't give out Halloween cards but I really have enjoyed making them this year.

I am entering this card into A Spoon Full Of Sugar as I have followed their sketch. I think I will use this sketch again and again, because it works with any image.
I love these fun papers by Bo Bunny, aren't they cute? I bought a few 12x12" s from this Bo Bunny set the last time I went to the craft shop and I still have lots of it left so I think there might just be a few more Halloween projects to come. Actually I know there will be because I have already made another card lol, just can't show it right now.
Of course the cute image is Cute Daisy May digi and is coloured with Copics, the ribbon was also from my local craft shop but not sure who makes it, it could possibly be Bo Bunny as well but I'm not 100% on that.
The bat in the corner is from a Summer Driggs kit as is the sentiment. I printed the bat out and embossed it with clear embossing powder, then inked all over it with versamark and put more clear embossing powder on because it was a bit patchy in places where the ink had dried too quick. I used a different paper than what I normally use and it didn't work so well because the ink dried much quicker. I've stuck his body and the ends of his wings down and put some foam pads in the middle of his wings to hold them up and give him a bit of dimension. And I think that's it for this one

I have some more goodies to add to my candy giveaway as I have passed 100 entries (and will soon have to add some more because I am fast approaching 150) but I need to get a photo of them first. My camera just doesn't take pics inside (can you tell by my candy pic at the top of my blog?!) and I have loads of stuff to take pics of but the blooming rain won't stop long enough for me to get outside and get some photos! I made a card for Just Magnolia but can't scan it because I have big flowers on it and I also have loads of DT stuff that I really need to get photos of but can't until the rain goes away! I must get a new camera!!
I will get the pics up of my candy goodies asap though.

Hope you are all having a great day :) I love to read the comments you leave me so don't be shy, if you stop by please do leave me a comment, even if it's just to say hi, so I know you have been and I can come visit you :)
