Halloween Card

I've been trying to make some Halloween cards to send to my granchildren, and these past two work weeks were horrendous, so haven't gotten to far!!  I try to personalize them so they bring a smile to their face....using their favorite pet or their own personality traits, and I include a Frisch's free meal gift certificate (local burger joint!)  I only have two out of seven done...so I think I'm in trouble!  I made this card using a free image from Designed2Delight , olored with Prisma pencils, then cut it out and attached it to the card with pop dots.  I used a newly purchased background stamp with lots of bats (just purchased on clearance from Michael's Crafts)..so sorry.. cannot tell you the manufacturer for sure .might be Hero's Art.  The die cut bat is from Recollections, the "Trick or Treat" title was cut from the Cricut Theresa Collins cart "Chic & Scary". I brushed some 3D Galaxy Gloss on all the letters and the owl's eyes, and then sprinkled them with clear glitter!  Of course the glitter seemed to find it's way to the rest of the card!  Hope you like it..thanks for stopping by!!
