Today's card was completely inspired by that little ghost image!  How cute is he???    You know he will be shouting Boo! at you, followed up quickly with a Trick-or-Treat and finished off with a Happy Halloween.  There just wasn't that much to color with his white sheet, so I kept my card black and white.  I found some designer paper that worked and divided them with some velvet ribbon.  Now, if only I could convince my daughter she wants to be a ghost, then I wouldn't have to sew!
 
Thanks for coming by!  Don't forget to see what Tangii has on her blog today.  It'll be a treat for sure!

Fun Card! I like the use of the circles it bring the eye around the card. And the houndstooth pattern paper is perfect. TFS AJ-
