Card Concept #20: Color Challenge

Welcome to Card Concept Challenge #20.  There have been so many fabulous cards made during the past 19 challenges,  but I am certain when you see this week's challenge theme and photo,  we are going to see a record number of "spooky" cards popping up in our gallery.
Yay!!! This week we have a color challenge, just in time for you to get busy with all of your Halloween stamps and dies, and admit have a lot of them!  Right?  By now, you all are familiar with the the Card Concept challenge rules.  All you have to do is create a card using the weekly theme and based on one of the following card-making styles:

                                                       Clean and Simple (CAS)
                                                       Clean and Layered
                                                       Clean and Graphic
                                                       Freestyle Collage
                                                       Shabby Chic
                                                       Classy and Elegant

This week I used dies from Top Dog Dies.  They just released some new Shape/Border dies and one of them was just perfect for my card representing the Freestyle Collage style.
The embossed panel with the spider web is Top Dog Dies Signature Delilah.  I folded it before I cut it and made an twine wrap around closure.  That cute cat (Halloween Trio) and the mini banners are also from Top Dog Dies (Banners # 1 Die Set).

The inside of my card uses Top Dog Dies Vintage A2 Mat die and the bat is also from Top Dog Dies Halloween Trio Die Set.  I had a lot of fun piecing together sentiment stamps from a variety of stamp sets and also had to add a few spiders to my web.

There's a lot more examples of the five different card style over on the Card Concept have two weeks to play along.   The contest closes on Monday October 13th at noon PST.  I hope to see your card in our gallery very soon!

This card is fabulous inside and out. Love how you did that front panel, and that cat looks great crouched there in the corner. A very realistic pose for a kitty.
