Halloween Ghost Card for The Paper Players

Boo!!! Halloween will be here before we know it and that makes me happy. I love handing out candy to all the little ghosts and goblins. To help get you into that Halloween spirit The Paper Players is having a Halloween theme challenge this week hosted by the lovely Jaydee.

This Halloween Ghost Card was started by searching for a sketch. I started a new job this week and my creative energy is running pretty low. Thankfully I found a sketch at Create with Connie & Mary that complimented what I had in mind. I knew I wanted to use the ghost from the Fun Fall framelit dies and the circle focal point is the perfect size for the ghost. The only stamping on this card is the Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment. I added the face to the ghost with a black stampin' write marker. The patterned papers are from the Motley Monsters dsp. Once the papers were selected all that was left was to cut, layer and adhere them to the black card base. The final touch was three candy dots by the sentiment and this card was done.

Looking for more Halloween inspiration? Check out the creations from the design team (click here). To play along you have until Friday, October 10th at NOON (PST) to enter your card in the gallery. All paper crafting brands are welcome and we sure hope you will join us. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
