A Birthday Bat

One more Halloween/birthday card with a not so scary little bat from MFT called Witch Way to the Candy...

Pretty simple, die cut the Happy Birthday from a bright orange alcohol inked sheet of Yupo.

I've coloured the little bat with Prisma pencils, added a few highlights, fussy cut him out on the line and for a bit of fun... gave him googly eyes, some of you will know where this card is heading 😉

**Just a heads up for those wondering why I'm entering a birthday card into Halloween challenges... it is because my husbands birthday is on Halloween so I figured that counts and it is for fun afterall, right?**
