TECC37 Ghostly Fun

Well it's time once again for another FUN and Challenging Sketch from Taylor (Taylored Expressions) Cupcake Friday challenge.
Wow this was a challenge trying to figure out how to fit in all those different circles.  I had this cool idea in my head to use the Cuttlebug Spiderweb Embossing Folder so I used that for my starting point.

Then I wanted to use some of the Creepy Crawly Designer Paper (retired SU) that I hadn't used up and several of the patterns featured cool circle patterns which were perfect for this sketch.  My only problem was that I wanted to use this spooky epoxy spider sticker (Creative Imaginations) in the center of my spiderweb but I didn't want the card to be to scary so I opted for some fun Ghost images and a few more spiders for a little scariness as well. 

My card base is Pumpkin Pie layered with More Mustard (distressed with the Cutter Kit) and then layered with the Basic Black Spiderweb rubbed with White Craft ink.  I added 3 patterns of the designer paper and embossed some spiders (Papertrey ink) with Black Ep.  Then I used a circle of More Mustard edged with a Gold Spica Glitter pen (to resemble the moon) and raised that up with foam mounting tape.  My Laughing Ghost is from, (Hey, Ghoul Friend - retired SU).  I highlighted it with a Copic Marker and Frosted Lace Stickles.  The Boo Sentiment Ghost are from Great Impressions.  I colored the Pumpkin with Only Orange, Green Galore and highlighted the eyes with a Yellow Spica Glitter pen and the ghosts with the Frosted Lace stickles.  They were also raised with foam mounting tape.
