ColorThrowdown Challenge #263 - Happy Halloween!

Hi Everyone,

I am so super excited to have been asked to be the guest designer for the Color Throwdown challenge for the month of October!!!  Every week a different color combo with an inspiration photo is given and you create any project that combines those colors in any way you want! Even if you don't have exactly the right colors - its totally fine - just jump on it and play along anyhooo!!! 

Which is what I did this week - I didn't really have the Tangerine Tango color, but went with the orange that I did have and created a little Halloween card using the colors from this week's challenge:

I love these beautiful colors together - and while you could create any card from this combo - it kinda felt like it was perfectly made for Halloween! I used the simply awesome haunted house die: 13 Dead End Drive - isn't it too cute?! I cut out little blocks of yellow and orange cardstock behind the windows so that they would appear to be "lit" from the inside and then cut a yellow circle to put behind the moon and gray cardstock on the path leading from the house - and then popped the whole house up with dimensionals and added some glaze to the house to make it all shiny and fun :)

I put two fun DPs next to each other and then added some strips of cardstock and some strips of vellum on the bottom and tied the sentiment Happy Halloween to the bow with some orange twine - I loved how this card turned out - fun and shiney :)
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Too Cute To Spook from Taylored Expressions
Papers: Halloween Project Pantry from TE, Vellum and Choice Black cardstock
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Tangelo Orange
Accessories: 13 Dead End Drive (haunted house die) from TE, foam, glaze, corner rounder, buttons from stash, orange baker's twine
And please don't forget to check out all of the amazing creations from the Color Throwdown DT with these amazing colors - hope that you get a chance to play around with this gorgeous fall colors!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
