A Twist on Halloween Colors

Happy cold and chilly Tuesday!  I'm wondering if we will see snowflakes falling today!  Lol :)

So we start a new challenge for you today at Tuesday Throwdown, and it's a good one for the season!  We want you to use Halloween colors - so green, orange, purple, and black!

I decided to twist this a little.  I love this color combo, but I didn't really want to make a Halloween card (shocked!  Can't believe I said that...I love making Halloween cards!).  Surprisingly, this color combo works great for those non-spooky cards too :)
See!  I LOVE how this turned out!  I know I used that sparkly green circle paper on my project a week or so ago, but it was on my desk and worked perfectly for this card too :)

That fun dotted type patterned paper under my wagon was actually green and pink dots, but I took some of my shinhan markers and colored over the pink with some purples and it worked perfectly!

For my image, I combined a couple sets from our wonderful sponsor - Doodle Pantry.  I adore this company, their shop is full of amazing and cute images!  Made it really hard to choose what I wanted to work with for this card.
I combined the Wagon Hello and Floral Jug set for this image.  I had my sweet hubby help me get the images totally lined up because I'm not an expert at doing that in paint.net yet and he's a genius :)
As always, thanks babe!  I love you <3

We got the images lined up perfectly so the flowers and pumpkin are all sitting in the wagon.  It looks so cool, I just love it!!  I colored them all in with my pencils and then filled in the grass and sky with my markers.  I did a little out-of-the-box cutting for the top flower jug and the wagon handle and then added it to my card!

I kept the sentiment simple and sweet because the card is pretty loud with those colors and I didn't want to crowd it too much.  But I adore this card!  That color combo is never one I would have come up with on my own, so I'm excited that something meant for Halloween could be used for something else too :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Doodle Pantry #51-Anything Goes
    Simon Says Stamp-Halloween Color Coordinates
    Word Art Wednesday #154-Anything Goes

Be sure to stop by Tuesday Throwdown to see the rest of the DT's amazing creations, and then join in this awesome challenge!!!
