Hi and welcome to my blog.  Today I have a card for the new Fusion Challenge.  Don't you just love that photo?  There's something about black and white stripes and lime that I just love!

I decided to play with only the photo this week and chose to use the sketch from SugarPea Designs for my card.

This adorable little ghost is from Eek-a-Boo and I stamped and colored him very lightly before cutting him out with my Scan n Cut.  His bow-tie and the banner were painted with clear sparkle pen. I used some Limelight cardstock for my popped-up front panel and die-cut a stitched circle from the front.  Behind the circle cut-out, I added some striped patterned paper.

The sentiment is white-embossed onto a black stitched panel and I finished the card with some Glitter Drops.

I don't send Halloween cards but this ghost is just too cute not to use!

Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the design team.

This is just so adorable! Love it! Usually that green is one of the colors on my desk for creating Halloween cards but I probably never would have come up with the black and white stripes to go with it...but I will now :) Thanks for the inspiration!
