Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #124

Thanks to the inspiration from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge my Halloween cards are done a little early this year! I was getting ready to do some Halloween crafting when I saw the new sketch! I love when my cards combine lots of different elements but are still simple. The pumpkin is a free download in Cricut Craft Room. The ghost was stamped and cut out. The strip of orange / black paper is from the Nevermore paper collection. The black sparkles are actually shimmer trim that I punched with a regular hole punch!
TIP: Anytime you are adding a plain shape like the pumpkin be sure you add a little shading by sponging the edges of the shape. And to give a little more dimension use foam tape to mount the shape on your card or layout.
Here is the link to the AHSC Blog and week #124 sketch.
