Batty for You

I have made a halloween card that is more cute than spooky!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

The Alley Way Stamps - Be Inspired 11
The Sweet Stop - Sketch 177

The design and background paper have been inspired by the sketch at The Sweet Stop.  Okay, the sketch has circles and I saw rectangles but hey it's only an inspiration!    The colour scheme has been inspired by the colours of the pumpkins at The Alley Way Stamps.

The background paper comes from Scraps N Pieces.  The banners have been handcut from white cardstock and then coloured with Distress Inks - scattered straw, spiced marmalade and tumbled glass.  At least that was the original intention but I wasn't quite happy with the tumbled glass one - it was a bit too blue so I went over it with a copic marker BG72 to match the card better.  The digital stamp and the sentiment are both from The Alley Way Stamps (September freebies).  I have coloured the bat using YR07 and BG72 copic markers.   The black banner has been cut from black cardstock and the sentiment added over the top.

Due to some sort of a problem with the linky thingy on Be Inspired 10, the winners had been chosen before I had uploaded my card.  So, I don't think anyone from The Alley Way Stamps actually saw it.  Here is the link to that card:
I'm hoping that there isn't the same issue this time and that my card is included.
