BugABoo Goth Girl Bday Tag

Used BugABoo digi, Goth Girl, which I colored with Crayola pencil colors (I print the digi at 5"x 7" size and find that I can color much better when it is that size, scan it & print colored to size I need) to make this birthday tag. heat embossed the sentiment (thought the 2 letters HB are appropriate for Happy Birthday). Added Bat charm (ck out the wiggle eyes that the Bat charm has), felt heart (and a few strands of feathers) & ribbon.
