Scary Skeleton

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadian readers! I'm not much of a Thanksgiving craft type person so I thought I would share a Halloween treat instead.I've had this card in my head for a while and finally got down to actually making it. This card uses the new SU set Scary Skeleton. I love this skeleton image because of the way it is positioned - it almost looks like he's dancing. And it makes it great to add a little sentiment underneath the lifted foot. I chose not to do that for this card because I thought it made it look a little too busy. Also, I'm not quite decided if I want to colour inside the skeleton with a white uniball pen so he's actually white instead of black...? I know I should use current Halloween papers but I much prefer these older retired ones. Sorry.

Stamps: SU Scary Skeleton
Ink: Versamark
Paper: SU ghostly greetings (retired), SU pumpkin pie, basic black, kiwi kiss (retired)
Punch: SU word window punch
Ribbon: SU 1/4" pumpkin pie grosgrain
Misc: SU white embossing powder
