Color Throwdown Challenge #17

CTD17 banner

Wow!  It's a Halloweenie Challenge!  Make sure to check out our Throwdown blog as Kisa is giving away candy--not the fattening kind, the FUN kind!  Here are our challenge colors this week:

CTD17 swatch

And here is my card:


Isn't this little witch sweet?   This card kind of grew and evolved into something a little more than I had originally planned!  It's hard to tell from the photo, but the DP has glittery stripes, and the cut-outs are all punched from SU's Brushed Silver cardstock.  The little witch is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with various inks.  I do love Crafty Secrets images!  This also qualifies for the Crafty Secrets challenge on SCS here, which is to use black & orange.  Thanks for looking and be sure to play along--you might win that blog candy!  Link your creation to a comment post on our blog, or to your gallery at SCS.  Be sure to use the word "CTD17"!  Now lets look at what the other designers have come up with:
