CAS-ual Fridays: no orange!

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge?  make a halloween card without a spot of orange on it!

Is it just me, or did it suddenly become so hard to not use any orange?  hee hee.  I feel like my 6 year old!  Orange was my forbidden fruit....

But I did it!  Here's my take:

No orange!  Some black, some kraft paper, and purple coloring - but no orange!

I stamped the image from SU's "greeting card kids" onto kraft cardstock using memento black ink.  Her hat, cape and socks were colored with a purple copic marker (her socks got a tiny shock of yellow, too).

The sentiment was created using lawn fawn's "sally's abcs".

The kraft edges were sponged with black ink, and a quick border was created with a run through my sewing machine.

Thanks for looking!


  1. your card! I love the color orange but should try the challenge! Great job!
