Dynamic Duos.......Trick or Treat

Hello Peeps!!

Just popping in here quickly to share a card I made using this week's color on the The Dynamic Duos Blog.
Love this challenge, I am fast becoming a color challenge girl, still love the sketches but I find myself wanting to play each week with this challenge.

This week's colors:

Basic Black and Lucky Limeade with the dessert option of making it a Halloween project.
Right up my alley cos you all know I LOVE me some Halloween!!!
I pulled out my Stampin Up "Toxic Treats" stamp set, I hadn't played with this one yet so I was happy to get the chance to use it.
I stamped the main image onto my lucky limeade card stock with Basic Black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then used my label framelits to die cut the image out.

I then built my tag using Limeade, black and gray card stock. I embossed my gray with the spider web embossing folder.

I used some retired DSP for the two pieces under the tag. I used some 1/2 inch striped satin ribbon, black and gray. I used the ribbon across the DSP and also on the tag along with limeade card stock and a piece of the DSP all cut with a "v" on one end.. I added some of the ribbon to the top of tag as well. 
The tag is mounted to the card with dimensionals. 
The sentiment is from the same set and is also embossed. I cut the ends into "v's" and curled it a bit.
I added three silver brads, tho in the picture they don't really look silver,  to the top corner and called it done. 
One more Halloween card ready to send out!
Thanks for stopping by today and
