Dynamic Duos....BOO to you

Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using this weeks color challenge on the Dynamic Duos Blog.

Since it is Halloween Season, so to speak, these colors made my mind instantly go in that direction.

I had just got this fun little set from Stampin Up called "Monster Munchies"...I LOVE this cute little owl in this set and had to use him for this card. I stamped the owl with tangerine ink onto some very vanilla card stock and used my 1-1/4 inch circle punch to punch him out. He is matted with a 1-3/8 inch circle of basic black. I then punched a scallop circle with my tangerine and added the circle to that.

I just happened to find the old olive piece and the basic black piece already embossed in my scrap pile. I love being able to use pieces up from that huge pile. The old olive was embossed with the square lattice EF and the black with the spider web EF. 

The base of the card is old olive card stock followed by basic black and the pretty chevron striped DSP is from the "Howlstooth and Scaringbone  paper pack. 

I found the two little square brads in my stash while digging for something else and thought they would be cute on here, they are non SU. I just had to add a googly eyes to my cute little owl. 
The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped with black stazon onto very vanilla card stock. I curled and cut the end.
I added the owl piece to my card with some dimensionals and tucked the sentiment panel under the edge.
I then added a couple of small pieces of DSP with ends cut in a "V" under the scallop.

Thanks for stopping by and
