Josh's Halloween Card and a Freebie

I don't do scary.. so I thought this was adorable.. especially since my grandson is only 14 months! My daughter just told us they had gotten him a vampire costume. I think this is actually "Batman" but.. it works!
Do I hear an "Awwww!"? I know!! It's going to kill us that they are in Texas and we won't be able to spend it with them.
Here's the artsy, fartsy shots so you can see that cool embellie!!
Got to love Glossy Accents!! I just cut that out of this awesome paper (K&Company Halloween by Tim Coffey) and added Glossy Accents and pop dotted it!  And I am going to add below the file I created for that Word Art sentiment. It's the perfect size to cut out with a 1 1/4" round punch and layer with your smallest scallop nestie (or scallop, round punch).
And here's a close up of the coloring:
My grandson's really a blonde like his "PaPa" (they prounounce it Paw Paw) but with this little bit showing I didn't do it blonde. (He doesn't actually have fangs either.. lol)
And here's the Word Art I used here. There's 3 Halloween circles and some Christmas stuff. I love playing with all sorts of media.

As always, click on the thumbnail before you right click to save so you are getting the full blown image. If you guys create anything with it make sure to drop me a line.. I would love to see it! I get those edges on my sentiments by just going around the outside edge with my Copic. Cool huh?
Here's all the details:
Image: Bilmalarna (I've searched and cannot find this stamp anywhere. It was stamped for me by a good friend.. thanks Elizabeth!!)
Papers: K&Company "Halloween" by Tim Coffey (ADORABLE!!)
Ribbon: Celebrate It (Michael's brand)
Sentiment: My own Word Art
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in "Broken China" and "Peeled Paint"
Misc: Crystal Effects, Nesties Circle and Scallops, EK Success 1 1/4" Circle Punch
Skin: E00, E000, E02, R02
Cape, Shoes and Hood: C3, C5 and C7
Pants: YG13, YG11, YG03
