Happy Halloween!

Good morning everyone!
 It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!  
This week it's Sue's turn to host the challenge and she chose the fabulous theme...
NO Designer Paper!!

For my card I used the adorable "Mumeek" image from Stampendous... it's stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics.  The background is embossed with the Darice Brick Wall folder and I used a MS punch for the bats.  The sentiment is from Stamping Bella and it's cut out with a MFT die.  I've added Vintage Photo distressed ink to the brick background and all of the edges... the jute and gems are from my stash.
I think this is the first time I've made a Halloween card without using any black at all... just orange and kraft cardstock... and I love the way it turned out!  I'll have to try it again
next year! :) 

For more inspiration be sure to stop by the challenge blog and take a look at the DT gorgeous creations!

That's it for now... but I will be back Saturday with another card.  
Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by!

This is the perfect Halloween card for those of us who are too wimpish to enjoy ghosts and witches Tammy. I love the humour of your image - there's not much on those bones for the 'guard' dog to sink his teeth into. You have been so successful in creating a Halloween card without the use of black. Oh, and I love the bats with their green eyes. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
