Happy Birthday in Black and Orange

Good morning! A quick post from me today to share a card that I made last night with a couple of challenges in mind.

It seems that everyone is all about Halloween at the moment. We don't 'do' Halloween in Australia but I thought that I could use some of the inspiration photos that are around at the moment and draw from the non-Halloween elements.

Here is my card 

I have used one of my newest sets from Happy Little Stampers. I have to say that I love these sentiments. The set is called Everyday Sentiments. Perfect for your everyday cards!

I started by creating a brusho background. I sprinkled some crystals straight onto my watercolour paper and misted with water. I let the colours run around a little and let it dry.

I also used the circles from the Mix Mash set. I stamped them with Pumpkin Pie ink quite randomly over the panel. 

I embossed the sentiments with black powder which gave a bit of shine to my card.

Here are the sets I have used

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

I took inspiration from the spotted black and orange pumpkin

I took inspiration from the black and orange plus the glossy finish on the stands

Spray paint dollar store glass candle sticks black and add pumpkins for Halloween decoration
