Day 9 and counting down to the big day.  The card today uses one of my favorite stamp sets that Stampin' Up! came out with a couple of years ago.  Once again, I am sorry to say it is retired.  Set is called From the Crypt.  Main image and bats on the sides are both from this set and you will probably see the rest later in the month.

I wish you a hauntingly fabulous day!

Main images is colored with three different markers to get the swirl effect.
I did use Crystal Effect on main bat.
Background has stamping, steciling, and more stamping. 
All edges are sponged on main image and card base.
Stamps are: From the Crypt (retired), Sanded (retired), and En Francias (current).
All materials used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

Yup that's it...can you believe it??

Don't forget the CIP!
