Boo to You!

I have a really simple Halloween card, but I think it is really cute too!
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and folds at the top.  I used white cardstock for the card base, then cut some black cardstock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8."  Using my Cuttlebug and the Seeing Spots embossing folder I embossed the black cardstock.  I cut some green polka dotted cardstock at 4 1/2"x3 1/4."  I then inked the edges of the polka dotted cardstock with some black ink.  My cute little ghost guy was cut from Paper Doll Dress Up at 4."  I adhered him to the card with pop-dots.  I used glossy accents on his shoes and ran some star dust Stickles around the edge of the ghost.  I also gave him some googly eyes because I think they just make thing so much more cute.  I used a stamp from Scrappy Moms for my sentiment.  I stamped it on white cardstock and trimmed it to fit.  I cut some more green polka dotted cardstock 1/4" larger and adhered it to my ghost, to make it look like he was holding it.  I then finished off the front of the card with black pearls. 
I also finished the inside of the card.  I cut some black cardstock at 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and the green polka dotted cardstock at 5 1/4"x4."  The white cardstock is cut at 3 1/2"x4 3/4."  I used stamps from My Craft Spot for the interior sentiments and the ghosts.
I made this card for the following challenges:
