CTD215/DS74 - Ghostly Greetings

 Hello and welcome!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!  Our hostess this week is Lori who chose some fun colors for us to create with along with an adorable inspiration photo.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Happy Haunting with the coordinating ghost die and for my layout I used the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge #74.  I ended up turning my oval length wise which is different from the sketch challenge but it worked better for my ghost.  If you look at the close up photo below, you can see how I added some shadow and colored the eyes on the ghost using Copic markers and then added some glossy accent to make the eyes pop.
 Supplies: Happy Haunting + die, PTI Halloween dp, Nestie oval dies, Copic markers, Glossy Accent, Ribbon, Embossing folder, Button, Bakers twine, Chevron border die, Foam tape.
