Going batty at MDUC

Welcome to another week or wonderful challenges at Magnolia Down Under and this week we have a shooktacular one for you, it's Halloween inspired!! Now, don't panic if you don't have a Halloween stamp, your card could use any stamp and use Halloween colours (purple, black, orange, green, etc), or maybe include some candy on your card, like Tilda with her lolly pop, or those cute Magnolia candy papers... if you have any left, can you still buy that one?!
I was lucky enough to pick up this adorable bat Tilda AGES ago (but not in time for last Halloween!), and she is finally coming in handy. The background stamp is a c.c. designs stamp, I think, that I got from TPS. I really need more background stamps, they are such a great way to make your image pop! The sentiment and bat on the tag are from the going batty sentiment set also from TPS. The bats are buttons I had still from an earlier project, they are so cute, and the ribbon I sicked up at a craft show a while ago.
Everything has been coloured with my copics. Here is a close shot of the tag, the digital sentiment had been printed on acetate and I inked the edges a little to give it definition and popped it onto the card with a brad so it can move around a little.

Hope your Halloween is a spooktacular one, my kids are a bit too young this year but i hope next year we might be able to do something. A local park is having a twilight event (twilight as in early evening, not the movie, lol!) where kids can dress up and trick or treat and they are having a bbq (how aussie) and other fun Halloween stuff in a country that does not celebrate Halloween, hahaha!! So hopefully this years event is a huge success so we can take the boys next year! It sounds like so much fun.
