A Halloween Challenge

Hallween ChallengeThis past weekend my friend and “grandmother” in my Stampin’ Up! upline, Jann McCollom,  issued us a “Wacky Weekend Challenge”.  She challenged us to make a Halloween card that does not use black or orange.  Well, that was certainly a challenge for me because those are the first two colors I always incorporate when making anything Halloween.  I accepted that challenge and came up with a color scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Basic Gray.  And, for inspiration, I used this week’s sketch from Retro Sketches.  I think it turned out pretty cute in spite of no orange or black.  🙂

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps:  Bootiful Occasions
  • Ink:  Rich Razzleberry,
  • Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Polka Dot Parade dsp
  • Big Shot:  Chalk Talk Framelits
  • Punches:  2-1/2″ Circle
  • Embellishments:  Epic Day Washi Tape, Neutrals Candy Dots, Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
