Halloween Challenge(d)

For this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner our fab hostess, Diane Gilbert, gave us a fun color combo that's perfect for Halloween: Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso (and Diane put white in there as well - but I just couldn't make that work!). Well, I'll say that I like the card I ended up with, but it was quite an odyssey getting here! I had another card almost done and I tossed it aside and started over completely. But anyway...

The stamp set I used is called House of Haunts. I stamped the haunted house twice, on the razzleberry and pumpkin card stock, then I cut around the top of the house to put the orange moon behind it. For background panels I used espresso and pumpkin designer papers, and the sentiment (from the same stamp set) was punched and mounted on a label from the die set Lots of Tags. I sponged all the edges with espresso ink and added three celery brads to finish it off.

That's it from me - now be sure you see what else the team has created for this challenge, and we hope you'll play along as well!

This card is fantastic, Lori. You really used the challenges colors to a great advantage for this card. That's a wonderful stamp set and I love the way you inserted the moon behind the house! Glad to have you back - I missed you last week!
