BOO! A new card for Pile It On with 12 other challenges!

Happy Sunday!
It's time for another new challenge from the Pile It On Team! and this time our challenge was to use 3D items on our projects, anything but flat!
We got to play with the wonderful images from Soft Pencil and I chose this super cute Michu on a Broom!
This week was a first for me as I combined 2 different challenge sketches! They were very similar and 2nd said it was fine to use the sketch as a base and add to it so I was fine!
Paper Maniac gave me one sketch and Sketch and Stash gave me the other!
CCEE Stampers wanted you to Go Digital
Die Cuts R Us wanted 2 products they sell in their store
Fun With Shapes had a Halloween Theme
Gingersnap Creations wanted bling
Belli wanted Halloween colored Bling
Charisma Cardz wanted to see the Decoupage technique
Dutch Dare wanted us to be So Charming
Stamp With Sarah Kay had an Animal theme (and allow any brand of stamp)
Whimsy Stamps - The Eyes Have It
Cooking It Up With Katie wanted some Metal, a border punch and the image of something "alive"

I colored Michu 3 times and cut him out and decoupaged the image.
I added bat eyelets that I turned into charms hanging from the mat.
The mat is cut from a scalloped Nestie and embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I also added an embossed border topped with ribbon to the side panel.
The papers are from an old DCWV stack.
The sentiment is a rub on that I added eyes to!

The inside is more dp and the message mat has a punched bat border from an EK Success border punch.

Here's a close up of Michu and the decoupaging (I'm not sure if that's a word! LOL)
So get out your 3D embellishments and get creating!
