Colours of Halloween

Good afternoon friends,
Tuesday is here again and that means a new colour challenge at The Outlawz. Our colour palette and twist were chosen by Penny and the DT have made gorgeous cards with this theme. Please hop on over and have a peep, then I am sure you will be entering this challenge with your creations.

 The sponsor for this month has been  Anji's Antics.

Halloween is not really celebrated in South Africa. There are a few  places the have a special function, but not the general public. I do not have much in the way of Halloween stash, but came up with this card.

I got the idea for the background from a card I saw somewhere on the internet, but didn't take not of the crafter, so can't  give  credit.

I coloured the background with Pan Pastels. I love them but need to get some more experience.

The tree and birds are Marianne Design dies.
The fence and cat are Memory box.

Very simple and easy to make, hope it qualifies as a Halloween card.

I will enter the following challenges:
Country View challenges...Something Spooky
Crafter's Café challenge #34...Spookable
Ladybug Crafts...Halloween/use your  diecuts
Kaboodledoodles challenge  #195...Halloween/Anything goes

Challenges 4 Everybody #32...Anything goes

Enjoy the rest of the day wherever you may be. Hope the storms in The Netherlands and the UK, didn't do any damage where you are. Take care and I will see you back here tomorrow.
Love Ursula

Ursula, Your sky in this card caught my eye. So sorry that you don't celebrate Halloween and have a way to stuff yourself with candy and not feel guilty about it for a day/night. That way you over buy the candy so you can eat the stuff you like until Christmas - LOL. Saw your beautiful creation on MIM.
