BC173 - Frightening

Welcome! - Please click HERE for my Annabelle Sneak Peak - You won't want to miss this one.

Happy Friday and Happy Blogger Challenge day.  Today's challenge:  Black/White and a "splash" of Orange.  Not sure what constitutes a splash of orange but hopefully this is just the right amount to be considered a splash!

For this card I wanted something quick and easy since I have been madly stamping all week for the Annabelle releases and needed to give my hand some much needed rest.  There is absolutely NO stamping on this card but I love how it turned out.

My card base is Basic Black and I layered a piece of Black/White designer paper (Daisy Bucket Designs - Black Tie Affair) along with a punched border of Ghosts (EK Success).  I tied some Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain ribbon around these pieces and then added an epoxy sticker to a circle of Pumpkin Pie card stock and raised it with foam mounting tape.  I've had these awesome epoxy stickers for a few years now so have long since forgotten who made them.  Sorry!
That's it, quick, easy, clean and simple but I think an over all fun Halloween card.

Be sure to stop by the other BC members blogs (listed on my sidebar) and check out how they used these colors.

Have a great day.
