It's Thursday and Create with Connie and Mary have a fun color challenge just perfect for this time of year!  This week we are working with some great Halloween colors.

I just got My Paper Pumpkin for September in the mail at the beginning of the week, so I used it for today's card.

I haven't done a banner card in awhile, so I thought it would be fun for a Halloween card.  I kept it pretty simple using minimal stamping. 

On a Basic Black card base, I added a Tangerine Tango Banner with "Boo" from Paper Pumpkin stamped twice.  To add a bit of color, 4 banners from Motley Monsters Designer Paper were added to the sides.  Each strip of designer paper is 3/4" wide then cut down to have the lengths vary.  I added a little flip to the ends with a bone folder for dimension.

The card still needed a little something, so I added several bats from Freaky Friends.  Two hold up the banners and one more in between the sentiments. 

I think this turned out to be a fun Halloween card!  It's your turn now!!!  Join the challenge with me.  Just go to Create with Connie and Mary for all the details lus more great cards from the Design Team.

Thanks for visiting!  Happy Stamping!!

Definitely a fun card - bright and very seasonal! Love the addition of the bats to your banner. I am not a fan of bats in real life but I sure do love them on cards!
