Double D - Orange & Black

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and our theme is:
Orange & Black
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .


As you can see by the mood board, there's a variety of ways you can create using these colors but of course, I just had to go with Halloween.  With Diane & I also running the year round Halloween challenge called the TWO OLD BATS HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE (please come check it out & play along!), I just had to dive into my many Halloween goodies.

I actually had several pieces & parts in a bag (various Halloween die cuts) that I've collected over the year so I decided to see what I could create using these items.  I was happy with the way it came together!

Here's a close up ... I did add dimensional tape to the back of the bats & witch to give them more of an illusion of flying.  LOL ... did it work?


Of course, you just HAVE TO ADD Googlie eyes to a Halloween card!  LOL

 I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

  1. Super cute card my friend! I love the flying witch! Have a great rest of the week!

  2. It did work! I noticed they had some great dimension right away, love that! Loving that striped background paper too! FUN!

  3. Fabulous use of what you had in your stash and adding the google eyes made it even more fun and playful, great job!!

  4. This is so cool, Darlene! Love all of the different patterns. The witch on top of the sentiment made chuckle. Great placement of the google eyes. So fun.

  5. This is so cute Darlene! What a great way to use up those scrappy little bits. The googlie eyes are a fantastic touch!

  6. I would say the dimension you brought to them did make it look like they are flying, like the big 'boo", like the way you used the webs all around the card too

  7. I love great cards that were created from the things in our stash. When they turn out spectacular all the better. I love the dimemsion.

  8. Now this BOO is very clever with the googly eyes! Gee, I will have to make a note of this. The bats and witch definitely appear to be flying around on your card. It's very Halloweeny and fun!

  9. Great card! the googlie eyes :)

  10. Fabulous card! The googly eyes are perfect! Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon.

  12. That is lovely - and clever with gorgeous colours and fabulous design, love it ♥

  13. Great Halloween card! Love the placement of the googly eyes and the flying witch and bats. The striped background was a bold choice but it works! Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
