Charisma cardz challenge # 46-a sketch

Good evening everyone. I`ve been kept busy, so haven`t had time to read up on the blogs, but hoping I will catch up in a mo.
It`s my nephews birthday at the beginning of December, so being 17 it`s a bit hard to decide what to put on his card. The boy stamps that I have seem a bit young for him and the few other stamps that I have are either too girlie or too old. So off I trotted to the local craft shop and came across some halloween stamps by inkadinkado. The skull was just right for him and the double sided paper by black market paper society, suited the stamps.
I inked around the edges of the paper and lightly stamped the bat, that was included with the skull stamp. I added 4 brads(2 either side) to the top corners, then layered a strip of the other side of the paper across the bottom half. Added eyelets and threaded fibres through the eyelets, then added the sentiment in the punched circle. The skull was stamped in black, but the card I used changed the colour to a grey.
I used the charismacardz layout sketch #46 for the layout of my card, so will be forwarding this to her blog. Hope everyone is doing o.k and catch you all after the weekend. Bye for now.
