Ghosts in the Trees!

I've had the idea for this card ever since I saw this Birch Forest with Leaves stamp at the A-Muse-A-Palooza event I attended last week at Stamp on Over. It's a haunted forest!

The ghosties are actually part of an old clear set, Simple Celebrations, which I just love and use all the time. With a little masking, I was able to make them pop out of the forest and howl their hellos.

Coincidentally, this card also works for this month's A Muse Lounge Challenge, "Holidays in July." I'm sure that this challenge was intended to get us all thinking about Christmas, but I always find it difficult to start my cards when it's sunny and hot outside.

When do you start your Christmas cards?
