Do You Recognize These 3 Spooky Ghosts?

A few weeks ago I shared some cute and spooky Halloween pencil toppers, made with the Impression Obsession Ghost Die. As I was crafting up those pencils, I made a few extra ghosts that have been laying around my craft space. What better way to use them up than to add them to a handmade card!?

This card came together so quickly and easily, especially thanks to the adorable pre-made bows that I added to the ghosts. Simply diecut the ghosts, add the bows, and adhere to a simple layered card base. The sentiment is from the Pumpkins stamp set - isn't it adorable!?

Today's post is part of Impression Obsession's Die Cut Obsession. The design team is sharing die cutting magic today, so head over to the IO blog to see  links for everyone participating! I can't wait to see what they've each created for today! PLUS I can't forget to mention. . . there's THIS little deal going on, so GO SHOP:

For today's card I started with the Fall In Love stamp set. I absolutely love the square images in this set. They are each separate stamps so you can use any or all of them in any arrangement you'd like. I love the simple layout of this card and I had a blast spending some time with my colored pencils to shade these sweet fall images.

And that sentiment - isn't it perfect for the FALL COLORS CHALLENGE?! It was pretty much meant to be. 
Once I colored the images I assembled a few layers of cardstock, the sentiment strip, twine and then a splattering of FSJ Dark Roast Silk across the card. I like to keep cards simple that have lots of coloring, to let the images stay the STAR of the show!
Alright friends - it's your turn. Dig through your stash of Impression Obsession stamps and dies, and see what you have that works with fall or Halloween colors! Then link it up at the IO blog! Don't have any Impression Obsession stamps and dies? I hate to be an enabler, but you really should check out their shop - every time I look, I see something I never noticed before. They have a HUGE selection, in EVERY style and theme! (#sorrynotsorry)
