The Card Concept #20 - Color Challenge

The Card Concept's challenge is to use orange, black and white
this week.
 Here's their inspiration photo:

It's Halloween time folks, and these colors emphasize  
fall's holiday season.

Waltzingmouse stamp sets: Boo and Friends & Great Big Owl helped
create this chalkboard card.
Little Boo is embossed on vellum (he's a ghost after all!), with
paperpieced lolly and pumpkin
All cardstock PTI

Freestyle Collage 

My husband and I spent the week at the coast, where we enjoyed 
great weather, and an Apple Farm with more pumpkins I've EVER seen in 
one place.
Took these photos with my phone.

The farm was tucked into the hills, and sold every good thing the earth produced.
They even had a petting zoo for children.

One or two last photos to enjoy.

 Do you like stopping at little farms and getting lost in
their bounty? I make my DH pull over at every one we see.

Hope you enjoyed a bit of the beauty of Autumn!

  8. What a cute little vellum ghost, and I love the chalkboard effect on your card also! Thanks for joining us this week at The Card Concept :)

  9. First of.....your pictures are amazing! I've never seen this many pumpkins either! All that fresh produce makes me yearn for a longer summer here in Manitoba so that our gardens could keep producing!

    Now speaking of producing, you've produced one AWESOME blackboard card. I'm in awe of the sharp embossed images - do you use Versamark? Great composition - so well balanced. The wee velum ghostie and the gingham/hounds tooth print ribbon steal the show! I'm so glad that our Card Concept Challenge photo inspired you to create :)

    Phone pics - Wow - good quality!!!


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
