Color Throwdown #312- If the Broom Fits....

Happy Wednesday everyone!! We're (well, I am) celebrating hump day with this week's Color Throwdown colors. Broni picked the colors this week and she is moving us into the Halloween season...


Wouldn't you just love a present packaged like that!!!


 I jumped on the Halloween theme using some new Reverse Confetti goodies!! The sentiment (IN LOVE), witches hat, and broom are from RC Cast A Spell /corresponding dies and the "jagged" layer was made with RC's Treat Tote- lastly the stars used RC's Stars Pretty Panels Confetti Cuts which I first die cut and then die cut again with a circle die.

Used the RetroSketch from this week....

 I know Arielle made an adorable Halloween card using this sketch- I was already on the Halloween theme with Broni's colors and wanted to use a sketch....did chose a perfect card to case, right!

Our Guest Designer this month...Tara Godfrey from Inking on the Edge - this girl knows how to layer and embellish!!

And the featured Stamper this week is Karren Johnson... you can find her blog here!

So glad to have you playing with us!!
