Spooktacular! Cuttlebug Be Inspired 52, Fall !

Can you believe its October already?? I have been in Birthday mode for a month, but I have been gearing up for the fall holidays {if only in my mind} *wink* Im sure Im not the only one that has lots of fun ideas and "plans" to do it all...only to discover that you have run out of time!!  Not this year!!

This week at cuttlebug challenge blog we are getting a headstart on the fall season, with the help of digital delights, they provided the team with fall themed digital  images to work with. Im so feeling the Halloween "mojo" !!
Oh you might want to know about card huh??   :D
This is a 51/2 square card, embossed with the bird call folder { the bird is covered by the designer paper} and sanded to reveal the color core of the core'dinations paper. The top half is covered with bat patterned  paper and is distressed, then stitched. the fence is a Stampin'Up! wheel  and embossed with glaze for a spooky look. I used a craft knife to cut out the spaces between the posts.The moon was sponged with saffron,summer sun, and pumpkin pie classic ink, and in a moment of bravery ...stitched I was "scared" it would be crooked but hey it came out OK!!

This Dracula is too cute to be spooky! I colored him 4 times and cut and layered him, I even added crystal effects to his timepiece to look like glass.
 I have been inspired to go exploring through the storage shed and fill the house with Pumpkins, and ghosts!
I bet the whole Design Team has been bitten by the fall 'bug" too, please be sure to visit them and see all the inspiration they have for you!
