For my card I used a haunted house Sizzix die and mounted the die cut onto SU Summer Sun cardstock and trimmed the yellow around the house. I used shades of orange Copics to shade the windows. For the background I used SU Lovely Lilac cardstock. I punched a circle from a scrap, placed it on the lovely lilac background and sponged around it to create the moon. I sponged just a touch of color through the moon to make it appear a little spooky. The darling little ghost is PK-M04 colored with copics. I stamped the image 3 times so that I had 2 additional ghosts, well ghost heads, coming from the haunted house. I used some Martha Stewart border punches for the graveyard and the crooked fence as well as the 3 little pumpkins. (I cut them from the pumpkin border punch.) The grass was hand cut. Some punched bats and some skull stickers finished off my card.

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a safe, FUN, and Happy Halloween!!
