The Bat Cave

Alizabethy left a comment on my Horrible Hallowe'en card that gave me the inspiration for this card. She called it a "bat cave" and I thought, "that gives me an idea..." :)

"The Bat Cave - front of card"

The front of the card features a free Graphics Fairy image with some orange glitter on the moon for extra sparkle, and a little purple glitter around the edges of the silhouette to help it stand out from the background (pearlescent black card).  The lettering uses the Vintage Market Sizzix alphabet strip, with my usual two sets of letters cut (this time in silver and orange) to add dimension.

Enter if you dare...

"The Bat Cave"

This card has the concertina-type tunnel card construction with apertures cut using Spellbinders label dies and liberal sprinklings of Graphics Fairy bats of all shapes and sizes, including two bat ladies!
