Spooky Envelope

Welcome back to the Double Trouble Challenge!

This post is for the second week of the current challenge where I am a Guest Designer for the month of October. There are multiple parts to each challenge - Things 1, 2 and 3. Only Thing 1 is required to participate but it is always fun to try to incorporate all the elements of each section into your project. 

Thing 1 - "Don't leave. Come bat. Let's hang out!" All you have to do is choose at least three (3) of the seven (7) colours from my rainbow of All Bat Colours and create a project. In addition, black, white, gold and silver are free to use.

Thing 2 - Link up with the Crafting Happiness challenge. Watch the dates as the requirement for these challenges change each week. We are now on WEEK 2!
Oct. 21-27 - #19 - Halloween Colours - the Halloween colours don't have to be that of a Halloween project, just the colours of the event.

Oct. 28-Nov. 3 - #20 - Halloween - anything Halloween (cards, tags, treat bags, etc.) 

Thing 3 - "Thing 1 has bats in her belfry and is driving me batty!" 

Include something in your project that flies... bats, crows, butterflies, witches, batman, the raven "nevermore", or bat-ever you want. 

Since the link up with Crafting Happiness requires a Halloween card, I had to go to my Cricut as I don't have Halloween stamps. There are some great images there and I chose to create an envelope card with a card that slides out. The "envelope" part has a large cobweb on it and I adhered the word "Spooky" to that. Googly eyes and open mouths were added to each of the 
letter Os.

The inside card base was inked with 3 blue inks. I then added the Cricut images to form a frightful scene. The inside fits perfectly in the cobweb envelope. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us your Halloween projects.
I am also linking up my card with Crafting Happiness as their theme this week is Halloween.
