Sisterhood - The colors of Halloween!

Hello All!
Time for a new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters blog.
Today's challenge is being hosted my MWAH and the theme I have chosen is:

The Colors of Halloween


Now, even though we are using the colors of Halloween, it doesn't have to be a Halloween card/project ... BUT, you must use at least TWO of the colors shown above.  Here's what I came up with ...

 To pull together the colors I wanted to use, I went right to my watercolor paper
and Ken Oliver Color Bursts.  They always make for such a striking background!!
And I am certainly pleased with today's panel!

I just received the Lawn Fawn 'Large and Small Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables'
and so got busy creating the frame I wanted to use for this bold
and beautiful background panel.  Since it's really hard to see the detail of these
dies on the photo above, I've cropped a portion of the photo so
you can see that wonderful cross stitched detail.

How fortunate for me that I just happened to have the correct
color sequins in my stash.  Perfect accent along with the fun I/O Balloon
which I have flying in the corner with a Baker's twine string.

I've coordinated the inside sentiment by using two panels cut
with the same cross stitched rectangle dies and balloon.

That pretty much does it for me today!
I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!  I look forward
to seeing what YOU create using the Colors of Halloween!!
