CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #24

This weeks CAS-ual Friday is really fun!  Make a Halloween card with NO orange!  Here is my non-orange card...

IMG_3395_edited-1

This card was super duper easy!  I took PTI's Smokey Shadow cardstock and ran it through using the Linen side of the impression plate.  (I say that A LOT don't I?)  But before I put the paper down on the plate, I gently rubbed Fresh Snow Ink on the top....gently....very.  THEN I ran it through and I think it looks so fun! And then there is that little ghost!  I have said before I am not a Halloween type girl...but I am sorta diggin' my ghost here!  I drew him and then cut him out and gave him eyes!  I popped him up on pop dots and added a  Harold's Alphabet "Boo!".  OH and I rounded a corner...I say that a lot too!  :)

Here is this weeks challenge...

I'm diggin' him, too! You are such a clever girl - REALLY love the effect of the faint white on the dark gray background. It almost looks like a scary, staticky movie - KWIM? Genius, girlie - shear genius!

I love this card, it's so simple and yet so - well - ghostly!
Orange is not missing at all.
