Ghost Spooked - Boo!

Hello, everyone.  I decided this month to get an early start on the monthly challenges, especially the progressive ones, since I missed out on a couple of great challenges in September because I ran out of time.  So today's card is for a progressive challenge at SK Digis by Sonia Kertzmus.  Anyone who played along last month received this cute, spooky ghost to use for this month's challenge (thank you, Sonia).  There's also a sketch challenge going on at SK Digis (see sketch below), which I used for my card.

I started with a white card base and covered it with black cardstock.  Next I added four panels of digi paper according to the sketch.  I coloured the digi with pencils, fussy-cut, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  For the sentiment, I used a rubber stamp and fussy cut.  I embellished with a metal clip tied with ribbon, and two polka-dot buttons.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stampSK Digis by Sonia Kertzmus (thank you for this freebie)
  • Digi papersMygrafico (thank you for the freebie papers)
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Anita's)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Staples
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Accents:  Buttons, metal clip (Oriental Trading Co.)
