Kitty & Jack-O-Lantern

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

Hope your day is going well. We had a beautiful fall day here in Pittsburgh- warm and sunny. I didn't get to enjoy the day because I was getting ready for a garage sale we are having tomorrow. 

It's a multi-family one with my son and daughter-in-law and some of her family. We are supposed to have great weather so hopefully it's a successful sale. And, we will be outside for 5 hours so I will get to enjoy the warm weather tomorrow. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #810 on Splitcoaststampers. Chris was the hostess and she chose soft suede, terracotta tile and flirty flamingo for her color trio. Optional was anything round. 
terracotta tile, soft suede, flirty flamingo

I used enamel dots and there are circles in my background designer paper to cover the optional item.

I decided to try and create a Halloween card using these colors. It worked out ok for me with the help of some neutral shades. My card layout is from the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #819.

I cut the pumpkin from terracotta tile cardstock and the pumpkin vine in mossy meadow (neutral) "magnolia lane" designer paper. For the cat's scarf I used flirty flamingo cardstock. The soft suede color is in my card base, the designer paper and the card layers.

The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "coffee break" collection. The rectangle layer is from the "pressed petals" collection.

I finished off this card with a few terracotta tile enamel dots. Well that's it for me for this post so until next time........God bless.
