Color Throwdown Challenge #361

Hello everyone!!! We have had another week of go, go, go!!! Cody had another football game Monday night...they tied 6-6. This proud Grandma had to show you a few pics at the of this post. My church is having a huge garage sale this Saturday so we have been working day and night to get ready. Hope we have a good turnout!!!'s Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!! Tammy is our hostess and she has picked a beautiful and dramatic color combo. 

I found inspiration for my Halloween card from Wanda's awesome Halloween card in the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards...

Wanda Guess: A Blog Called Wanda – Boo! Happy Halloween 2014! - 10/31/14 (Taylored Expressions: Birch Trees Cutting Plate/ Memory Box Bat & Letter dies).:

Isn't her card fun and fabulous!!! 

My card features the Taylored Expressions Spooky Trees Cutting was used to cut the trees out of Sugar Cube cardstock. It was adhered to the patterned paper background...the moon which was cut out of Lemon Meringue cardstock was adhered to the paper prior to adding the trees.  The Eventful - Fright Night die was used on lime green cardstock and backed with Lemon Meringue. The Arbor Sign Post was also cut out of lime green and the 13 from the TE Witch's Brew stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. Finally, the Little Bits - Witch, the spider from the Spiders and Spiderweb die set, and the bat from the Spooky Tree Accessories die set were all cut out of Oreo cardstock. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD361 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd361 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
