Cards for Men - Challenge 22 - "Animals"

Good Morning Everyone, weve now reached our twentysecond Challenge on Cards for Men, and this time we want to see your "Animals" on your card, Im sure that wont be to much of a problem as we all seem to have them amoung our stash I know I have. Anyway this time our sponser is Digital Delights.

And this is what they say about themselves:-

Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with my little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!!

And they have generously offered 3 digi stamps of winners own choice.
We were lucky enough to be given several images to play with and I chose this one for my card.
His name is "Count Batula" and I thought he was just ideal to create yet another family Halloween card, Ive printed him onto white card before colouring him with my copic and tria pens, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Pumpkin Die to cut him out, then drew around the die to create the mount for him out of orange card. The sentiment is one from my stash thats been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of orange card and one two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Halloween" Cd & digi papers, the first one is dark blue and black background with black bats all over it, on top is a orange paper with witch hats and bats on thats been cut into a 5" square and with my bat border and corner punches I have punched all around it, then placed it in the middle of the first mount. The mounted image was then placed in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, and I also punched out another pumpkin and with some stickles I have run it along the top of both. I then for my final flourish stuck some bat charms in several places at the top of my card and a pumpkin at the bottom next to the other two.
Now that youve seen my card do please pop over to the Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Animals" Challenge.

What a fun Halloween image!
Unfortunately I can't see that you've used anything from a crafting CD Rom - lots of digi downloads but no cd? If you have used one please mention it in your post.
