Frightful 411

Hello again!  This afternoon I have a card for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch #161 challenge.
I could not resist a Halloween card (that being my favourite holiday).  I brayered the background in Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Summer Sun (retired) All of the black is embossed and I used the large wheel Haunting Hill(retired), stamp set House of Haunts and the little bats are from Halloween Frights.
I tried cutting the bats out but had such a hard time that I resorted to the 1" punch and inked around the edges.  I think it looks cool that way, though.
Well, I have to go.  It is my hubbie's birthday and he wants a special dinner so I guess I have to cook.  And there is cheesecake cooling in the fridge that I have to top.  So I am off for now.  Remember  Happy Stamping!
