Happy Haunting - Color Dare #259


New Color Palette Photos have been created for better clarification of the colors. CTMH cardstock has the actual color on one side and the other side is a lighter variance of the same color.  

The new palette photo will make it easier for comparison for matching colors if you don't have CTMH Colors. Plus...the variance of the same color gives you a fair range for substituting similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.

The rules will remain the same (All and Only) the featured colors in our Challenge, neutrals will be specified and some colors optional.  

Weekly Challenges Open for Two Weeks:  We have eliminated the Sneak Peeks and have decided to open Weekly Challenges to two weeks. 

Our first Sept Color Dare #259 will be active from the 1st to 14th, and the next Color Dare #260 will go active on the 8th to 21st, etc. There will be two challenges running at all times. The two current challenges will be available on the sidebar of the Blog.

This extension gives you more time and flexibility to create and hopefully invite more participants for Color Dare - but please don't wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge. The first winners for #259 will be announced the Monday following the 14th, and each week thereafter.

This color challenge appeared to be good for a Halloween card so my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #259 was combined with the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #418.  Don't have very many Halloween stamps so decided to go to Cricut Design Space to see what was available.  Found a Spider Web which was used for the circle in the sketch and then the Hat had a spider attached to it which made the perfect image for my spider web.  Die cut hat with colors from the color sketch, layered the hat and adhered with 3D Foam tape on top of the spider web.  One of the Fundamental Papers "Pansy" had a stripe in the design...cut a strip and placed it on the side.  Sentiment was added and three dots.  

Please hop on by both of these challenges to see Design Team Members inspirations and join the fun...challenges are still open for entrants to submit their projects.  

On the inside of the card I added a witch from my stash on a broom stick on the bottom right-hand corner.

I love this card...that hat is so cute!

Yes - Halloween is coming so I should expect lots of spooky Sue cards... the spider dangling from the hat is a nice touch. I like that the green isn't overwhelming in your design - it's there but very subtle - allowing the focus to be on the darker, more Halloween-like colours.

Your card is so fun! I love your use of dies with the spider web and witch hat and then the witch inside. Great card!!! Thanks for joining us at HLS Anything Goes with dies!
