Dynamic Duos #25

Time for my favorite challenge at Dynamic Duos!  The week is our Black Tie event with the dessert option of adding die cuts! We want to see your creations with Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black.  Dessert is optional-adding die cuts! I created my bold patterned Halloween card with the Spellbound Cricut Kit, using Sunset and Black by Close to My Heart for my color duo.  I added slate as my neutral color.

My card is designed based on the sketch challenge this week at Mojo Monday-

Design Tips-My base background is stamped in black pigment ink on Sunset cardstock and embossed in clear powder.  Coordinating shapes were cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  My owl was stamped with black pigment ink on Sunset cardstock and then clear embossed.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1790 Cricut Artiste Collection
G1040 Spellbound Cricut Kit
B1413 Perfect Fit-Halloween
Z2503 Basics Pigment Ink
Z821 Clear Embossing Powder
