52CCT Oct. Color Challenge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, the color challenge is to use any colors except red and green. I challenged myself to use the colors from Colour Q this week. I am also entering this card at

Mojo Monday
Heart 2 Heart - little black dress
Technique Time Tuesday - faux cloisonne
By Lori Designs - black, orange, and choice

I used orange, black, yellow and blue for this card. I was inspired to use black by the "little black dress" inspiration challenge. The colors I used are Autumn Terracotta, Honey, and Lagoon. I used silver embossing powder and a magazine page for the faux cloisonné challenge.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Black, Honey, Autumn Terracotta
Stamps: Believe WOTG, Single Snowflake
Ink: VersaMark, Black
Other: doily (not CTMH), Silver Shimmer Trim, magazine (not CTMH)
