This week's challenge at DRS Designs is to use bright colors on your card. It is the perfect challenge for creating Halloween cards. Here's the card I made.

My card base is black CS with a layer of bright orange that was embossed with the Fiskars spider web plate after stamping the "Fang"tastic greeting. The side panel was stamped with both the accent bats and the small Happy Halloween greeting in Memento Black, layered on black CS and added to the card base. The tree branch was stamped in black on the bright orange and layered on black CS. I stamped the goofy bat on white CS, fussy cut and added him to the tree branch with a glue dot. Some punched bats were added to finish the look.  Hope you like it.

We'd love to have you come join the fun. You can see details here.

I also have a card for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started with a Bravo Burgundy Card base, added a layer of holly DP and a gingham ribbon. The square panel is die cut along with the poinsettia. Some rhinestones were added for the center berries. I just realized there's no stamping on this card. I guess the sentiment will be going on the inside!!  It's a great sketch. Here's the link to TMS.

Until next time,
