Ghostly Greetings! - Curtain Call Challenge

I'm sharing another Halloween card today.  Yes.  I know.  You're SO surprised.  Ha!
Once I started creating cards for this occasion, the ideas just kept rolling.  So, I rolled with it. :)

Anyway, lets get to the challenge.  I'm playing along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Spooky Scene.  The inspiration graphic is so fun.  See?
I created a window card for my spooky scene.

If you look closely - or click on one of the closeup photos - you'll see that my "wall paper" patterned paper includes skulls.  Nice detail, huh?  My ghosts were stamped with versamark onto vellum, then embossed in white.  I couldn't resist adding those googly eyes.  I added a bat using some black EP.
My house siding was created by using a woodgrain impression plate, then I scored every 1/2" to resemble boards.  Two Spellbinder dies were used to create the window.

Well, as my card says...Ghostly Greetings.

Supply list ~
card stock: white (PTI)
stamps: been boo'd (PTI)
ink: onyx black versafine
patterned paper: haunted 6 x 6 pad (My Minds Eye)
dies: classic squares large (Spellbinders), woodgrain impression plate (PTI)
other: wiggle eyes (Creatology)
