House of Haunts Card for 411 Sketch Challenge #252

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to make a card with one of the Halloween stamp sets that are retiring on May 31st from Stampin' Up. I am doing a Pizza - Retiring Stamp Party this Saturday. We will be doing six cards and two of them are going to be with Halloween sets. This is one of the cards.

I love Halloween!! It is hard to see but, the paper has bats on it. I am sad to see this Owl stamp go but, I am SUPER EXCITED for the new Catalog!!!

When I seen this sketch I just had to play along! I seen those three buttons on the side of the card and thought of Bats with silver moons instantly. This was a fun card to do. 

I thought that it would be cool to embossing the bats with the "Spider web" embossing folder. I used Silver Glimmer paper behind the bats to give them a "Bling Factor".

I changed my mind on where to put the words a few times but, I liked it best at the bottom of the card.

Stamp Sets:
House of Haunts 4pc set 2011-2012 Catalog (retiring May 31st 2012)
Grateful Greetings 12pc set 2011-2012 Catalog (retiring May 31st 2012)
