Hello Pumpkin


 
 
Hi and Good Morning :)

We have a great new challenge this week over at Cheery Lynn Designs of   'Black & Orange'. and as always the winner will receive a $20 coupon to spend online at the Cheery Lynn Store.
 
Now I was kind of nervy making this weeks project as Orange is SO out of my comfort zone, but once I got started it was nice to dip into some much neglected orange stash and I was really pleased with how this turned out. :)
 
I layered black bazzil cardstock, MME and Prima papers onto a 6 x 6 inch card base and then went to town on the dies.  Cheery Lynn have some awesome Halloween and seasonal dies and I used the Spider Web Doily, Spooky Tree, Going Batty, and Witch Hunt themed dies on this card.  I matted my image onto the gorgeous Horizon Coved Reflection die and shadowed it in black card behind.  I also used my favourite Lace Light Deco border die on this card as its so versatile!
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to join in this week, its such a fun time of the year to create something kooky and unusual, and I look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing some fabby creations.  Dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Inspirations Blog, so check back often! :)

Goodness those pearls & gems really make this quite incredible & I love your positioning of those bats. The gold mesh is superbly effective echoing the fish scales of your merwitch & the patterning of the small patterned paper.
