Lawnscaping # 66

It's been a while since I played Lawnscaping Challenge! Check it out if you haven't! My sweet and talented blog friend Vicky is the guest designer!
 
Today's card is a combination of my latest fascination (paint chips) and new Lawn Fawn stamps (thanks, Alice!). And it fits the monochromatic theme perfectly! For my card, I used two strips of grey paint chip as the background.
Trick or Treat!
I also incorporated (Owl Flourish) an embossing folder that I haven't used for ages. I white-embossed the bats in BG paper, cut and arranged them in a fun way! I also added the silver sequins for the owl's eyes! SPOOKY-huh?
I have a few more paint chips-related projects coming up! So please bear with me! Now go and RAID the paint chip section ( I won't tell! ).
 Thanks for stopping by!

The paint chips and embossing are outstanding, Virginia. I especially love the upside down bat at the top. The sequins owl eyes really pop. Your design is clever and cute.
