Here is a (late) card for this weeks Teapot Tuesday challenge. I will be sending this card to Angelique, who is a friend of Lydia (Understandblue). She has had some health problems and could use some cheering up. I hope this card will do a bit of that. (And there are bats - although they are little bitty!)
This card is inspired by one that I saw on display and photographed. Unfortunately, I don't know who designed the original and I couldn't find it anywhere on the internet, so I don't know who to credit for my inspiration. The original stamper had used this image and the negative cutout (i.e. the left over pieces) from these dies to create a framed image. I used that I idea and just changed up colors, designer paper and embellishments a bit.

Trina, I loved this when I found it on your blog but wasn't able to attach my comments there. I am intrigued by the combination of polka dots and glimmer and it looks so great together. Beautiful design.
