Challenge #8 - Halloween

Over on House Mouse & Friends challenge blog this week the challenge them is Halloween. I don't own any Halloween stamps so i made my card using the traditional Halloween colours for my card.
I really struggled with this one as these are quite strong colours for such cute images. I tried to keep my card quite minimal so it didn't become to over powering. I quite like the finished result but must admit that this one is my third attempt...........lol.

Third time's the charm, they always say. This is perfect. Your colors pop but don't over-power. This is soooo cute! Great use of the Halloween colors.
