A Ghostly Birthday Card for my darling Hubby

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 540 - Tempting Smoky Curry with Birthday for dessert, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 543 - Can you Resist? where I attempted Ghosting twice and finally gave up with what I had, Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 334 - Summer Treats, we seem to eat a lot of birthday cake during summer months and the blowfish is usually what we catch when we go fishing because it is too dang hot for the trout or redfish to bite, LOL. My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE # 407. This has been a fun sketch to play with. I made this for my dh for his birthday next month. He gets so mad when he pulls one of these guys in. My darling daughter (e3stamper) Shannon stamped me some images from her last purchase and I just had to color them up with copics. I cut the fish and the cake out and punched the sentiment with a circle punch. Needless to say my Ghosting needs more work as it did not do like I expected and this is the 3rd attempt for this card. I finally said, it is what it is.
I had made a stamp image from a die cut years ago and I used it on the inside of the card stamped in crushed curry after stamping first on the envelope and the sentiment from a Birthday quote set in temping turquoise. Hope you like it.
