Batty Halloween

My favorite holiday is fast approaching!!! Time for me to start getting ready for my annual Halloween bash. I pick a new theme each year and this year I am going back and forth between "Hero's and Villains" or "Science Fiction". Any thoughts?

Anyway, todays card is for a challenge over at Clean and Simple using this sketch:


The minute I saw this sketch I thought of a swarm of bats, so here is my take:


Supplies used : cardstock - kraft, black; stamp - Spooky Night collection by American Crafts; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Silhouette Studio cut file.
