Ghoulish Greetings!

I resigned from the Fusion Card Challenge Design Team last spring - but I still love the challenges!  And the first challenge of the season was this month, with a fun new graphic design.
 At first I thought I was going to make a wedding card - based on the inspiration photo - but then I realized I needed to get cracking on making a lot of Halloween Cards to sell at our Church Fair in October (Is September really more than half over already??!!)- so this is what I was inspired to make instead!
I found this fun rub n by K and Company in my 'Halloween' drawer and thought it was perfect for the inspiration!   I sponged Green Parakeet ink from PTI over a white panel - and then added the rub on.  
Not sure you can see it -  but there are gray stars and moon in the sky and orange faces on the pumpkins and orange writing on the gravestones!
So - I've got one Halloween card made!

Yikes, I couldn't imagine that color as wedding colors! It's perfect, however, for Halloween and your card looks wicked!
Hugs!
