TSSC332 Fall Fest and Mingle All The Way

Hello, Friends!
This is a clean and simple little Halloween card I made to go along with Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  I used to get to participate in her challenges all the time, but my back hasn't let me for a while.  I still get the emails showing the sketches, though, and when I saw this one, I knew it would be perfect for this cute little ghost from Stampin' Up's stamp set, "Fall Fest."  I love that it has "Fun Fall" framelit dies that cut out the main images in the set.  That made this card a breeze to put together, even with a bad back!  (I have a doctor's appointment Thursday, Sept. 18th when most of you will be reading this, for help with my back.  Please pray that this doctor will be able to help!  I've been stamping in spite of it, but it would be really nice to be able to leave the house and live a normal life again!) 
Back to stamping!  Since everything that is Stampin' Up's color Tangerine Tango is the exact same color, I just grabbed my Tangerine Tango marker, washi tape, and patterned paper.  I've been into heat embossing lately, so I stamped my ghost in Versamark ink and then used white embossing powder to make him show up on the black card stock.  It didn't fill in perfectly, but I like the texture it added to the card.  I colored in the white parts of the sentiment from the "Mingle All The Way" stamp set with my Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker.  I used the Tangerine Tango washi tape from the Retro Fresh set, which I have but never seem to think of, for the banner on the sketch.  Finally, I used the Tangerine Tango striped paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper set for my background.  Black candy dots added a little interest in the three corners of my square that you could see and my card was complete.
By having a framelit die that cut out my ghost and just grabbing Tangerine Tango and Basic Black items that all matched, this truly was a quick card to make.  Just because it was quick doesn't mean it isn't cute, though, and won't put a smile on someone's face this Halloween!
Happy Stamping!
