A shrimp dropped down my Kamali

I have a fun card to share featuring an new image from Simply B Stamps, Betty Day-O, my first Halloween card for the year.

So I have to confess I’ve never seen Beetlejuice so I don’t understand the name of this stamp when the character is Delia Deetz but I  do get that this image is cool, perfect for an 80’s themed birthday party or any child of the 80’s or, like my card, Halloween themed.  And being a bit 80’s, you know I just had to have loads of layers and the current sketch at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards was just perfect for that.  I did swap out the oval element for a chipboard shape that is all pointy, it just seemed to suit the image better.

I did Google to find out about Delia Deetz and this image is from the dinner party scene where the shrimp and the guests are possessed.  Kinda creepy but the image is so cute so I’ve gone with a mix of cute and creepy (creepy themed images but cutely done) on my card.  Think I’m covered then for the current Left of Center challenge.
