A Little Batty

The Colors on this card were from ColorMyHeart Color Dare #165, combined with a new challenge that caught my interest because it was a Cricut Cut and CTMH Challenge called Bitten By The Bug2 and the challenge was for a Halloween card to include a bat.  Click on either of these Blogs to see the Design Teams inspirations and many other cards submitted for these challenges.  

I started out with the Spider Web Card and Abigail from Paper Sweeties, and then pulled in other Halloween Elements to complete the card.  I selected the Paper Fundamentals Basics "Whisper" for the background because it reminded me of small webs. It wasn't until then that it struck me to make this into a shaker card, using some plastic sequins bats I had just purchased from Michaels. However, when I went into ColorMyHeart this morning to check to see if they had posted winners I saw ScrappyHorses (Katrina's) card which I may have sub-consciously scrap-lifted her shaker card. Also my daughter during the crop this past weekend did a spider web card too, but not a shaker. So, I was destined to use this spider web card.   

Added "Wink of Stella" Clear on Abigail's Witch Costume and Cauldron and added liquid glass to the contents of the cauldron to pull in shine and bubbles of the boiling pot.

Cecilia, thank you so much for bringing this to my attention....really appreciate it. I uploaded it again because I didn't know how to change it from the other submission. I usually test these to make sure it goes back to my site, but I must not have done that. Thanks again for your letting me know. Appreciate it.
