Would You Like To Be A Guest Designer? Grab A Freebie! Mwahuhuha!

Hi all,
It's Wednesday again & that means a Dude Time Doodles DT Card from little old me!
This weeks challenge is to use the freebie, which is available only on 
Dude Time Doodles, to create a  project for a Dude!
It can be anything you want it to be as long as you use the freebie provided!
The prize? 
Win a DT spot with the awesome Dudettes for a whole month!
They're such a great bunch of gals to work with & we have a whole lotta fun!
Here's my card!

I can tell you this little demon "Billy Bat" would not behave for me! 
He was one determined little dude
& just would not do what I wanted him to do!
This was meant to be a little round easel card but nope!
I coloured him up with promarkers but he didn't want to be the 
colours I wanted to make him!
No siree bob he wanted to be green!
So green it was!
This is just a simple little A6 size black card blank!
I cut an aperture using a scalloped circle nestie
then added some orange glitter around the edge!

I cut out the image with a smaller nestie & inked the edges with distress ink.
I cut a bigger circle from a spooky DP set by Jak Heath & mounted 
the image in the centre on foam pads!
Inside the card, I added a matt of white card which I also edged with ink.
I then added the image so it would show through the aperture.

This is the card open & you can see I added the word Boo, 
which was cut from another paper in the spooky set,
just for a bit of interest! 
This was cut using the Sizzix Summer Block Alphabet Die

On the outside I added some Card Candi in Halloween colours,
as well as a B & some googly eyes.
I also added a little pumpkin charm which I hung on some jump rings,
 this allows it to dangle in the aperture, & a little purple bow!
So that's my card! Nice & simple in the end,
after I stopped trying to fight with his nibs!
I hope you can find the time to join in the challenge!
Pop on over & grab the freebie, see what you come up with!
