Happy Halloween!

This is it folks – Halloween week! I’ll be dressing up my little punkin’ in his Transformers costume and taking him to various and sundry trick-or-treating events this weekend – it should be one for the memory books…Anyway, on to today’s card:

I wanted to do something graphic and repeating for this week’s challenge. I created the top layer of the card with my Silhouette Cameo – I designed some repeating circle patterns and added a basic sentiment using The Skinny font. I lined the circles with various colors of paper in the desired color scheme. I layered everything over a basic black card base. That’s it – easy peasy on the assembly. The most challenging aspects of this card were the design and the color layout behind the circles.

I’ll be entering this week’s ColourQ Challenge #212 –

Have a spooky Halloween!!!
