Color Throwdown Challenge #312

Hello everyone!! Can you believe it's Oct.1??? Where did the summer go....wasn't it here just yesterday??? Now I'm really getting nervous cause Christmas will be here in just a few weeks...yikes!!!! I better get busy with shopping and Christmas cards but first, let's have a little fun with Halloween!!! This weeks Color Throwdown Challenge is hosted by Broni and she has picked some pretty fall colors....I decided to make a Halloween card. 

My card features several Taylored Expressions dies: 13 Dead End Drive for the haunted house, Spooky Trees Accessories dies for the bats,  Little Bits - Halloween dies for the grave stones, the Gothic Window Accessories for the pumpkin, and the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills for the background skyline. 

The sentiment is from the TE Made in the Shade 2 stamp set and the sewing and distressing complete the design. 

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 CTD312 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
