 I decided to make a little Halloween Hanging Thingy... I put these fun little Ghosties in an open window surrounded with a lot of layers. 

 The ghosts are glued in on the backside of the circle frame and the second fence is popped up in front. The ghosts are shaded a bit with BG10 and the other colors used are in the pic.

Here's the up close. I added a black twill ribbon for a hanger and made a bow for the bottom edge.

  1. This is just the cutest set of ghosties I've ever seen!

  2. Your ghosties are adorable! Great combination of the dies and love, love your colors!

  3. Wonderful, Jenny! You always make the cutest little shaped cards! Your little ghosts are adorable and I love the split bg.

  4. You sure framed this trio of ghosts beautifully ! Love all the dies you used to make such a fun Halloween card.

  5. You're amazing! I love your "hangy thingie" - silly girl! The ghosts look amazing, but I am hypnotized by that multi layer die cut frame with the pretty gems and bow. I'd love ideas for making the house a little brighter!

  6. Adorable ghost trio, Jenney. Love your coloring and the design of this fun Halloween hanger ~ from the fab die cutting to that twill bow
