Halloween Dress Up

I decided to do a Halloween card that was a bit different.  I had purchased a set that included this stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle. 

The people in this stamp looked like they could be dressed up for Halloween so I stamped them in black on bright yellow cardstock.  The orange was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and rubbed over with black ink.  The bat corners are created by punching each corner of the orange with punch that is meant to be punching out two corner pieces, leaving the shape of a bat.  I added wiggle eyes to the two bat shapes.  The little spider in the corner is also from a Cuttlebug folder, cut out with a round nestie, and rubbed over with black in.

I entered this in a contest on the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  They have been celebrating their 13th birthday and have had several contests.  Their 4th contest is a Halloween card using their stamps.  I have quite a few of their stamps but had to be quite creative for this since I didn't have any that related to the Halloween theme.

Other challenges are:
Crazy 4 Challenges, also with a Halloween theme.
The Cuttlebug Spot - Totally Frightful theme.
Stamp With Fun - Halloween
Cuttlebug Challenge #54 - Halloween

What an extraordinary combination of unrelated elements! Never would I have considered using that stamp image with those darling "bats" and spider sneaking down! I love this card!
