"Boo" Halloween Card using Mini Monster's Cartridge

Morning Everyone!
I have a card to share today that I made for a few challenges.
I just recently picked up the Mini Monster's Cartridge on Ebay for a deal and have only played with it once.
Since Halloween is only a few weeks away I really wanted to play more with it.
Here is my creation~~
Spooky cute~don't you think?

For this card I used K & Company~Spook~Tacular paper that I just got from Michaels. Love this paper pack!!
I cut the ovals from George and Basic Shapes~one at 3 x 4 and the other 2.75 x 3.75
The ghost is from Mini Monsters and he is cut at 2.5. I cut all his layers and decided that these googly eyes made him look so much cuter.
I didn't have ribbon that matched so I used white grosgrain ribbon and colored it with my copics~V15. The picture is really hard to tell but it is a perfect match!
The sentiment is from Friskar's~Halloween Night Stamp set
Buttons are from my stash and I added Trendy Twine in Orange Licorice.
So what do you think?

This card is being entered into the following Challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Challenge #32~ Autumn Theme
Cropstop~Challenge #37~Button Up Ladies!
E.A.D. Color Challenge~ September Color Challenge
