Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge for October

 Hello Ghoul Friends!!

Well here we are in October and it is time to get your SPOOK on!  Welcome to the October Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge!  We are a Year 'Round Halloween Challenge because we are all a little "batty" and we love making Halloween cards!  We have a fun Inspiration Board, it is pictured below, to help get you started making a Spooky card!  We are all looking forward to seeing what you make!

Here is my card for the October TOB Challenge:

Scrappy Tails A2 Forest Tree Cover Plate
Memory Box Flying Witch
Sizzix Tim Holtz Pumpkin
Slime die
White card stock
Trick or Treat paper
Black glitter paper
Purple sparkle paper
Green paper 
Orange Copic marker

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with White card stock.  I took the Trick or Treat paper and added that to the card base.  I took some Black glitter paper and the Scrappy Tails Forest Tree Cover plate die and cut that out and added it to the card.  I took some Purple sparkle paper, Green paper and some Black shimmer paper and the Memory Box Flying Witch die and cut her out, pieced her together and slipped her under the tree branches.  I took more Green paper and the Slime die and cut that out and added it to the low tree branch.  I took Black ink and the Pumpkin stamp and stamped that onto to white paper, colored it in with an Orange Copic marker and used the die to cut it out and added that to the low branch.  I used the Witch photo from the Inspiration Board to inspire me to make this card.

Remember, you can create ANYTHING Halloween you would like and our mood boards are here for your inspiration.  You do not have to follow it as the theme, but you certainly can if you would like!!  Don't forget to stop by the Two Old Bats Halloween OCTOBER Challenge to see all the Spooky cards the Design Team has created!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Cool Halloween card, awesome, hugs, Lori m

  2. Fun card! Love the background you chose and the witches sparkly purple cloak!

  3. Lori, the green witch and coordinating slime are creepy enough, but then you added that grungy background, rather menacing pumpkin, and black trees! What a great Halloween card!
    Xoxo, Fran
