Color Throwdown Challenge #263

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and you know what that's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! The fabulous Bar is our hostess this week and she has chosen a palette of Halloween fun!!!! 

My card features the owls from Taylored Expressions  Owl-o-ween set and the matching dies. The owls were colored with Copics,  cutout with the coordinating dies, and popped up with foam tape. Doodlebug's Halloween Parade 6x6 paper pad from the Halloween Project Pantry Kit was used with the branch die to create the branch. The sentiment from the same set was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. The gray cloud was cutout with the Build a Scene-Swirly Clouds die and embossed with a Dotted Swiss embossinf folder, the moon was punched from orange card stock, the bat from the Owl-o-ween was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black, and the Doodlebug Sprinkles finish it off. 

Remember, You don't have to use the exact colors.....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD263 to the keywords section when youupload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
