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.


Stamps: Sage Advice, Priceless (Stampin’ Up)
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Very Vanilla (SU)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie (SU); Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Other: black brads (SU); flowers (Prima Marketing); petite oval and petite scalloped oval Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders)
