Halloween is Hoppin' at Tiddly Inks

When I heard that Tiddly Inks was having a Halloween Blog Hop I knew I had to join in since I really love Christy's images.  The list of all hop participants can be found on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog 


I chose Batty to use for my card. I colored the image with copics and tried a different way to color black hair.  The "flower" was made with some tulle I had left over from my wedding ~  way back when ~ and then I added a purple button and some organdy to the center.  I pulled out the sewing machine once again and stitched the two larger panels with a zig zag stitch.  I had this zipper trim for awhile and thought it would be a fun addition.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Sweet Stop - sketch
Creative Inspirations - Use the oldest thing in your stash (well the tulle definitely is that ~ 13 years old, and I actually forgot all about it until I looked through my fabric basket)
One Stitch at a Time - "Digi Madness" - use a digi image
Paper Sundaes - Make your Own Flowers
Stamp and Create - "Stitching"  
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - "Stitching"
Crazy 4 Challenges - "Buttons" 
Stamp Something - "Something Digital" 

Have a wonderful day!
