Another Trick or Treat

Hello my dear friends! The inspiration for today's card hit me when I was putting out my Halloween decorations this past weekend. I have a grapevine wreath that is covered with tin bats. They are different patterns, and one is orange with black plaid. I had a bit of a lightbulb moment when looking at it.. I always seem to stamp my plaid pattern in colors and thought it was certainly time to try it in black!

I based my card on this week's Crazy 4 Challenges sketch challenge:

And my card:

I am in love... I apologize if you're tired of the plaid designs - at least I am showing you just how versatile it is, huh? The card is pretty straightforward.. my favorite stamps from Halloween Party and Off Beat Backgrounds. The bats are a Martha Stewart punch, punched from black cardstock and then covered with Onyx glitter. I also added glitter to witchy's spell, her cauldron, and the brad.

Before I head off, I want to take a moment to thank you all for your visits, your kind words, and your support. It means so much to me to hear from you all and know you're there! On that thought, I hope your evening is wonderful!
