Happy World Cardmaking Day!  Oops, I'm over an hour late!  I tried sooooo hard to get this blog post in before midnight.  
And, my goal was to make 30 Halloween Cards this year, starting with the 1st of October and ending with the 30th.  I already missed the 1st, so the outcome is already looking frightful.
I hope you enjoy my first Halloween card of the season.  Halloween is my favorite time to craft.  I love Christmas, too - but I'm usually too busy during that time of year.
The 1st step of making this card is to punch the circle on the RH side, then adhere a mustard piece of cardstock behind your DSP.  I used Pebble Chalk in dark silver to add a cloud effect on the moon.  It doesn't really show up in the photo. 
The 2nd step is to emboss a piece of black cardstock, and then punch out your bats.  I sprayed them in silver Smooch Spritz and adhered them with glue dots.
The 3rd step is to stamp your sentiment and then punch out the label.  I distressed the edges of the label and the card with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
The 4th step is to gather the center of the mesh with a piece of floss, and tie with a knot.  You could also use a brad.
The last step is to assemble your card.  Enjoy!

WOW! What an AWESOME card! I love the moon, those punched/embossed sparkly bats, and that great distressed sentiment. Can't wait to see the other thirty cards (or, you know, the next twenty. or ten. or three. No pressure!)
