We are all mad here, orange and black for the Octopode factory

hey there bloggers,
Well it is challenge time over with Lily at the Octopode factory..@ http://toffchallenge.blogspot.com/
The theme is orange and black so I decided to use Alice to make a Halloween themed card.
The background is DI which will come as no shock to anyone if you have happened across my blog before..I Love them!
I used wild honey, spiced marmalade and black soot.
The background, is yes you've guessed in two halves...another trace trait!!!Both are coloured in very similar colours this time.The left had side has then been stamped with cobwebs from TIM and the right hand side using a fab stampotique swirl and some Tim bats.
The sentiment is one of Lilys and I love it!!The design elements are Lilys and I have used snowy runs elements to make the poles for the pumpkins heads.

I used Alice and coloured her rather differently and used black glaze pen to add stripes to her hair.
I then put the card together and hope it makes you smile?!..it makes me smile!

Why don't you hop on over and have a play..
