I just love the button moon, don't you? The background is embossed, however, instead of using the "right" side, I turned it over and swirled black pigment ink lightly over it. I like the effect it gave...something different. The spider is a button with the hole underneath. I took 3 pieces of thin wire, put them through the hole and twisted. Next, I clipped to length and spread them out to look like legs. (If you look closely, you will see them). I also took the back of a small paintbrush and dipped it into white paint, then dotted the eyes for the spider. Let dry and then dot the middle of the eyes with a black Sharpie. I used black embossing powder on the "Ghostly Greetings!". The ghost is single mounted.

I really like how this turned out. Do you? Sometimes, I find that I make a card and like it when I'm making it, but afterward, maybe a day later or so, I'm not so in love with it. It doesn't happen a lot, but...does this ever happen to you? Well, that's not the case this

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave me a comment.
