I took inspiration this week from the colors, flowers, gingham and bow!

This was a challenge for me! I used distress inks and old book paper to create my shabby look.

Laurie Willison 



I was inspired by the colors and all I could think of was fall! My favorite time of year!  

Yoonsun Hur


I was inspired by the colours and yummy orange pumpkin!



Geri Greening


Hand drawn black lines paired with bold, block letters & a simple image 
maintain a clean & graphic style.

Kim Heggins


I was inspired by the colors, orange and black, such a wonderful pair and they are not just for Halloween...I love baseball and the San Francisco Giants. 





Kerin Sylvester


I was inspired by the checkered tablecloth and found a DSP that mimicked that pattern.

Using sticky back paper I made my own flame stencil.



Narelle Farrugia 
I decided to use the challenge colours for a pretty flower that I used as my focal point on my card.

Cindy Lovell

When i saw the colors,i,of course thought of Halloween right away!!




I used lots of iconic Halloween images and made my own twine closure.



Inspiration from fall theme, colors, pumpkins and tablecloth




I love the colour combo and the candelabra made me think of the Victorian Era; hence the damask background
