Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Going Batty


Welcome back to our first inspiration challenge of the month. This time round we are hanging out and going a bit batty {grin}.  The LEAD for this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge.

I used this week's Paper Players sketch for my card and since I am not a huge Halloween fan, I opted to go with the colours in the picture as my inspiration - the white and yellow from the house and brown and touches of green from the tree.  Picked up on the flying theme with a butterfly in lieu of a bat and my hanging object became the vellum leaves.
