Ghostly Greetings

Confession time.  I have a thing for Halloween stamps.  My collection of Halloween images rivals my Christmas collection, which leads to another confession.  I haven't used them very much.  I'll pause now for a collective gasp.  Yes, it's true.  Therefore, I have decided to change all that.  My new (unofficial) goal is to use every Halloween set I own to make a card.  Ambitious, I know.  I thought it was only fair to warn you!  Expect lots of adorable ghosts, witches, and other assorted creatures over the next two months.  :)



This one's pretty simple and self-explanatory.  I die cut a few ghosts, added a splash of patterned paper, and embossed the sentiment.  (speaking of, I think my VersaMark inkpad is dying since the embossing turned out patchy - kind of works with the ghostly thing anyway)  I decorated the inside of the card to match.  I'm not sure what purple I used for the ghost.  I used a piece from my scrap drawer and can't seem to find the match.  Oops.

I'm linking this to the Mr. Bones Halloween Spook Out here.  Check it out if you dare!  lol
