The Duke wishes a Merry Christmas to all!

I've decided to enter this card in the Paper Smooches SPARKS challence "everything goes".  :D
As you already know Paper Smooches has the best stamps ever!

I was really bummed out because I haven't had much time to make cards for Halloween this year...
Making up for it, here is the third card in the "Silly Series".
I don't know what happened, it just assembled itself ( - almost)!
So... one of my most serious stamped backgrounds (alcohol inks, glossy paper and real red rubber stamps with archival ink) - and a bat from Paper Smooches - Voilà!

This card also reminds me of a December when a bat lived in the main hall of a school, because it was a particularly cold December. On the last day of school, when everyone was gathered in the main hall (and it was the first time the main hall was used in a long time) the bat started to have a flight show during the Christmas songs. The bat was flying out of the hall eventually, and some teachers let it out. The bat went back inside the main hall after the celebration was finished, and survived the harsh winter.
The next year, there was no bat living in the main hall, but when the headmaster started his yearly speech, it was not his usual speech. To all the participants' delight he read a letter from "The Duke", the bat from the year before, wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

Stuff used:
Stamps: Falling for you (Paper Smooches), B Line Designs - Lizzie's Home, Crafty Individuals 209
Other: Copics, twine, Memento tuxedo black ink, alcohol inks, Ranger archival ink (jet black), blingstones, glossy cardstock, blue cardstock from Panduro.
