Got Fangs? Stampin B's Design Team, Pile It On, Stamp Something, Stampin for the Weekend

I just love this little trick or treater. I picked him up at Hobby Lobby. We have hunreds of trick or treaters coming to our house on Halloween. Therefore, we buy lots of candy and fun items. We started buying several weeks ago. Halloween will be celebrated in my city on Saturday night this year because of it falling on Sunday.
Vicky Gould is the hostess this week for the Stampin B's Design Team challenge #81  and gave us a fun challenge to make a Halloween card with no orange and no black. Wouldn't you know, I forgot and started putting black bats on mine and stamped the houses in black. I had to start over and found out by going online that there are brown bats(disk-winged bat, for one) so that is what I have here.
This time, I used red, white, brown, and a lot of gray for my card. I colored the windows with a yellow Tombow Marker.
The cloak and face are paper pieced. I think his little fangs are so cute!

That is the cutest little vampire I've ever seen! And don't you love how you can find almost ANYTHING on-line. Who knew there were brown bats!

So glad to see that I am not the only one who got tripped by the no black thing!! That little vampire is just adorable. You did a great job paper piecing him!! Love your brown bat and gray haunted houses. You did a super job on your black-less and orange-less approach to this Halloween card. It's really fun!!
