*Use It Tuesday #18*

Welcome to another challenge with the Use It Tuesday Design Team!!!  Seeing that it is the end of October, the girls decided to challenge us with Halloween inspired colours....

For this challenge, you need to create a card using black, orange and purple.

As you know from my Scrapbookers Paradise challenge card, I am not a person who makes cards for Halloween... so I decided to play with the colours and have some fun!

Items Used: 
*Cardstock: Bazzill Bling
*Images:  Hero Arts Essential Messages
*Ink:  Versamark; Stampin' Up! Lovely Lilac, Only Orange
*Tools:  heat tool
*Embellishments: white embossing powder; Michael's Bridal flowers; Doodlebug Sugared Brads
*Challenges:  UseItTuesday#18

I've had the Bazzill Bling cardstock in my stash for a long time.... and Only Orange and Lovely Lilac hardly ever see the light of day....  I also don't do a lot of heat embossing and the brads aren't in colours I grab for very often....  yup, lots of stuff from my stash used in this card!

I hope you'll take some time to play along with us!

What a terrific way to make those flowers pop by putting them on black. Great look! Very stylish. :)
