It's beginning to look a little spooky

Happy September...eeek that means it's getting close to some holidays, starting with Halloween.  It's so fun to use colors that you wouldn't normally put together.  Bright orange and purple, wowsers!
The base of the card is Perfect Plum by Stampin' Up! I stamped with Dream Text by Stampendous.  Then a layer of black distressed a bit and scalloped on one side.  The next layer, the bright orange, was toned down by using a stamp by Delta called Crackle Background.  I also used the Dream Text on the flower made with the Tattered Flowers die from Tim Holtz.  Finally the gorgeous image from McMahon Digital Designs was colored with watercolor pencils.  You can find the stamp here.

Thanks for stopping in today!
