Hi all and welcome back to Cards By Kay ! Our challenge for you this month over at Simply Betty Stamps is to " Use Metal on your Project " and as much as possible ! My image is called " Vampire Portrait" and it is an image by Abigail Larsen available at Simply Betty Stamps here.

My metal pieces include my clock in the top corner, my little spiders in the web,and a small dragon down in the bottom corner.

My bats are a Tim Holtz original die and the spider web is from Spellbinders.
