Bat birthday card using QKR Stampede's bat digital stamp

This masculine birthday card features QKR Stampede's bat digital stamp. You might think bat = Halloween, but no, not really. You can use it for Halloween, but it works for a birthday or any type of celebration (think Bat wishes! I'm batty about you! Have the bat birthday ever!, etc). My inside sentiment here says, ' ...'cause it's your birthday!'. I've used this same sentiment and another bat image on this Bat Christmas card (yes, a bat on a Christmas card).

I dug around in my digital paper printout scrap bin for the papers. All of the papers (and paper 'ribbon') are bits left over from other projects. It doesn't show up much in the photo, but the center paper has little bats on it. In looking up the aforementioned Bat Christmas card, I noticed this bat paper was used on two other cards before this one and that it actually dates back to a 2017 Bat Halloween card (am I being thrifty or what?!). This card's gray plank paper is originally from that project as well.

Embellishments are simple mat enamel dots that pick up the red in the bat's eyeglasses and that bit of striped scrap digital 'ribbon'.
