Batty In Love

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something just using three (or more) elements on the list.

Today's festivities are in celebration of International Bat Night, which takes place August 29th - August 30th. The challenge runs from August 6th to August 16th.

I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the celebration theme. The background is patterned paper from a very old pack of Fall/Halloween papers from Creative Memories. I then used VersaMark Ink with Funky Fossil Bat Swarm stencil and heat embossed with black sparkly embossing powder. I decided to make the card a slimline to get the most out of the scene on the patterned paper. I added a bat stamp, die cut and sentiment from Paper Smooches Falling For You. It was a bit plain and dark, so I jazzed it up with a small piece of Washi. I used bats, night, black and moon from the inspo list. 

Come play with us! Remember that your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!

I didn't know there was an International Bat Night, but I'm all for celebrating them. Your card is a perfect recognition of the occasion. Love the cute hanging bat embossed in white, and that little spot of color with the washi tape. It's looking good in our gallery at Two Old Bats! Thanks for sharing with us!
