I have to admit that this week’s Dynamic Duos color combo of orange and black had me stumped for a while. I didn’t want to make a Halloween card, and I struggled with a few different ideas in my head that just didn’t seem like they would work. Finally I decided to see if I could tweak one of my previous cards to work with these colors, and I settled on this one from January 2011. I added a couple panels to the design, stretched it to a rectangle, and reversed the positions of the flowers and the flourishes. The sentiment stamp that I chose lets this card fit into this week’s OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge.
