Jen is this week's TPT hostess - her challenge is here: MMTPT690 - October 12, 2021 - Halloween Humor by Jennifrann at Splitcoaststampers
Neither humour nor Halloween are my good suit, so I'm afraid I've pretty much just gone with the fact that Ciara loves Halloween and spaced on everything else.
I used two gel prints in the background - a copper starry one, and part of a green and blue one for the ground. My gates are cut from matt silver card, and I created walls by embossing some pearlescent card with a brick wall stencil.
The Victorian gentleman is cut from black velvet paper, super to feel. The moon is vellum, and the bats are purple holographic card. I guess I should have looked for baby blue, but the purple was to hand. The image panel is edged with purple Stickles.

Came out cute and I see what one can say is baby blue on your card. Now you have me wanting to feel the savvy gentleman to feel the softness---neat background and not sure if he is trying to catch the bats or stars--cute card

Super creative..that bat catcher is fabulous...the velvet paper was a great idea. I love his net....so funny and the gates are amazing! For someone who doesn't really do Halloween you get an A+ on this!

Well you totally captured a Halloween feel on this card. Love that Victorian gentleman and I'd like to touch him now too. LOL. The thought of this guy all dressed up running around trying to catch bats cracks me up. Awesome scene and I love the fun paper you used for the bats. I agree with Polly's A+.

Well, imagine what you could make if Halloween was your strong suit, because this card is amazing! In fact, it's in my favorites now, because I love everything about it. Perfection down to every last detail including the velvet man and the holographic bats.

Sabrina, I keep looking at this, studying the wonderful details! I love the gates that appear to swing open. The backgrounds are so perfect for Halloween and I love that Victorian man - wish I could feel the velvet! Fabulous card!

Oh my gosh, this is spooktacular Sabrina. Love those gates and the purple bats. I think they look better than blue anyways amongst those wonderful copper stars. I am not into Halloween either, lol. Too scary for me, but I think you have knocked this one out of the park for Ciara. And she will love this!
