I'm Batty about you!

It's my Husband's Birthday on Saturday - 39 years young.... I am using the current challenge at the Basic Grey Challenge Blog to be inspired - Black, Grey + 1 ( one being any other colour!)
I have used turquoise as my extra colour.........
Irredescent black card base with a layer of turquoise coredinations gemstone.
The bat is from my pazzles cut in a grey Basic Grey paper from the Granola range and a turquoise whitewash coredinations. The lettering and leaves are again cut on the Pazzles using Coredination turquoise whitewash and a Granola print Basic Grey paper.
All edges are sanded and inked with turquoise .
The white lettering are rub ons, the turquoise is a whispers pen- handwritten. The bat closes with a fab Basic Grey magnet - they are cool.....
