So how was your Halloween?  I think we had the fewest kids ever – one small group came by like 6:30 and then maybe 20 minutes later a couple of kids, then some small groups every 10 -15 minutes – i was giving out hand fulls trying to get rid of the candy.  I’m not sure where everyone was – although I do think we have a lot of families around us that are like us – their kids are now in college and high school and they don’t have any more trick-or-treaters – so maybe that is it our neighborhood is older and we don’t have very many young families around us.

But enough of that – there is a new UDI Color Challenge in town – and I had some fun with this one!

Here is the inspiration picture:

And I really like how well these colors work together – I’m not sure that I would have used them together but I am very happy with how my card turned out.  The idea from my card came from one that I saw on Pinterest – it was a non-SU card but mine of course is made with all Stampin’ Up! products.

It is basically a bunch of punched pieces aligned in a grid on the front of the card.  I layered different pieces and added some embellishments like brads and buttons.  What do you think?  I love it!  See below for all the supplies that I used – I think it is pretty self explanatory – each set of punched pieces is on the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The only hard to figure out thing might be the “thread” in the buttons on the top row – well it isn’t thread at all it is a thin piece of card stock.  You can cut very thin slivers with the Tabletop Paper Cutter – that is what I use for just about all my cutting – I love it.
