Give Thanks with a Pop of Orange

Hope all you lovelies had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and loved ones yesterday! I was abruptly awoken at 5 am with touch of the flu so did not get to enjoy all the rich foods (well not for more than a few minutes) that make this day one I look forward to all year. No worries, I'm feeling much better today and have eaten far more than my share of pumpkin pie.

Here is a card I planned to share yesterday that was created with a little color inspiration from the busy, busy girls of Design Dollies. Who would have thought it was possible to create using black, white, gray and orange with feeling too Halloweeny?

(Sorry about the bad lighting and glare, this whole dark by 5 o'clock deal is kind of hard on my limited picture taking abilities.)

I added a little stitching, some grey paper from a Halloween party invitation and some very difficult rub-ons and although this is not a color scheme I would have come up with on my own, I really like how the card turned out. What do you think? This challenge is up until Sunday the 28th - you should play along too!
