CDAC PROGRESSIVE FREEBIE CHALLENGE #20



The freebie image over at CDAC for the Progressive Freebie Challenge #20 is one generously provided by Priscillastyles, and this is the card that I made to enter into the challenge:




I called my card BAT CAT! and coloured the image using alcohol markers, in the colours provided for the Colour Challenge at The Outlawz:
 

 The texture of the card is provided by the textured base card and the embossed diecut :





I added a little spider charm (metal) too : 

I used the following to complete my card:

corner diecuts - cut from an embossing folder packaging
spider charm - from my stash (it's been crawling around in the charm box for at least 3 years!)
buttons from granny's button box (my gran passed away more than 20 years ago so these buttons are pukka vintage!)
ribbon from a roll that I bought more than 5 years ago (it NEVER seems to run out!)
grey inked diecut
DP offcuts
stick on gems

I would like to add this card to the following challenges :


CRAFT YOUR PASSION, #128, 'BINGO' (emboss-ribbon-buttons)
