Stampin Up Jar of Haunts with Creative Memories Toil and Trouble with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to my inspiration for this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge.  I felt Halloween-y this weekend so I pulled out some stamps, old paper and started working.  

Here is the sketch:

I cut each strip at 1.25" x5.25".  I inked all the edges and cut the glitter rick rack to fit.

I stamped the jar and eyes on acetate and die cute.  I then used a stencil and some Distress ink to create the smoke in the jar on a piece of white card stock.  I die cut that piece and assembled.

I loved the card so much and it was great way to use up scraps.  I made a few more versions.  This one is using Authentique papers.

I placed the eyes on the jar in a different position on this card.  Which do you like better?  I was using the smoke as a cue for eye placement.
