A Pointy Hat Kinda Gal

I discovered another use for brads today…by complete accident. I wanted to put glitter brads in the corners and realized, too late, that the backs were too long and would extend past my black background! Rather than redo things or change the type of brad I would use, I tried to think outside the box a bit. Then, I had it! How about wings for bats. Albino bats?! Bat ghosts?! I added eyes to the brads with a permanent marker and, Voila! I had some rather cute-looking critters to keep my witch company!

    Cute card and a very clever solution to the brad problem – they look cute. Creativity to the rescue again.
