Arrg, you drive me BATTY!

Arrg, it is Treasure Hunt Tuesday, but first a card.
It was fun to poke around in Card Crazy's Gallery for this week's Featured Stamper's Challenge. Denise has a classy and clean style often with an element *popped* up to increase visual interest.
I chose to try and case this card. I am afraid I changed everything but the layout--and I even changed that a little. SO I don't think it is a good case--but I sure did appreciate the inspiration from Card Crazy's Gallery!! So many beautiful cards!
I did use some foam tape to pop up some of the layers to mimic the popped up elements that Denise uses so wonderfully.
FS83-You Drive Me Batty
The image and sentiment are from Stamp Oasis at Rubbernecker. I colored the image with Prismacolor and Copic markers. The edges of the bat and sentiment with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and an ink blending tool. First with Tea Dye, then Aged Mahogany, then Vintage Photo, and the very edges with Black Soot.
The designer papers are from Paper Studio and Sonnets. The dp on the strips is a black and cream checked pattern, I cut the paper so that only the white squares show. The edges are inked with the Tea Dye ink. The edges of the houndstooth paper are inked with Black Soot.
You can find the clue and all the necessary information and other deets on the home page.
