A Spooky Light In The Night

It's challenge time, again, at Shelly's Images! This time, its a color challenge. We want to see your projects using the colors brown, burnt orange and maroon. Please come over and join us at Shelly's Images to play along!

My card uses today's featured image, Light In The Night, from Shelly's Images. I absolutely fell in love with this image when it was released, and couldn't wait to play with it! It turned out to be perfect for this color scheme, too! The image is colored with Promarkers. I sponged around the image with Cherry Cobbler ink, by Stampin Up. Two corners of the image are adorned with these awesome glittered photo corners. The other two are embellished with a spider and web, and a big eyed bat. These Halloween papers from my stash are by Echo Park. The burnt orange patterned tape is by Martha Stewart's new Halloween collection. I've used this "Haunted" sticker from my stash, as my sentiment.

I used this sketch, below, (Sketch #7 From the Sketch Catalog at Sketch N Stash) for my card layout.
