Hey everyon

My Batty Hero

My Batty Hero 1

Hey everyone! Todays card features My Batty Hero from Tiddly Inks, my son is in love with superheros (as tons of 5 year old little boys are), so when I saw Challenge #159 Super Power on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog I had to do it right?

My Batty Hero close up

So i printed the image out at 8.5 cm tall and coloured it and the background on a single layer then cut it out and layered it on some more round die cuts.

My Batty Hero 2

I have been doing a ton of square cards lately, and this one I did as a standard A2 card!

My Batty Hero 3

I kept the layout of this card very simple with some solid cardstock and two patterned papers.
