Something Wicked

With Halloween closing in upon us I figured it was time to get a couple of cards made.  Today's card was made with the Jack O Lantern card file from the Haunted Forest set by SVG Cuts.  At first I wasn't so sure about using black as the top layer for the pumpkin but after trying the colors in reverse I will say that this order popped better.  Especially with the paper choices I made.
 
The stamped sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set Trick or Treat.
 
And since pumpkin is technically a "fruit" even though it's a member of the squash family I thought this would also be the perfect time to remind everyone that you still have some time to join us in the fruit challenge over at DoubleClick Connections.  All you have to do is create a project using fruit, link up and play along with us for a chance to win a yummy pack of hand dyed Skittles along with some other crafty supplies. 
 
Not sure what skittles are or how to use them?  Take a look at the top right of my card - those are skittles (Summer Release) and they are uber easy to use and the possibilities are endless.  For more ideas and a video on how to use skittles click here.

Love the papers and die cut on your card. I think the black does do the trick. It makes it spookier too! I guess it is time to get busy with the Halloween projects. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend :)

Sooktacular card :-) I love the background paper and the sentiment is perfect - you can hear the jack-o-lanter whisper those words ...
Hugs,
