We've been enjoying the fall season at Double Trouble Challenges and Challenge #95 is open through Sunday evening, October 31, 2021. As usual, we have three "Things" for our challenge:

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker is asking you to create an Autumn card using cheerful and cute Halloween items.

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare suggests you link your card to the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations #530. This will give you an additional chance of winning our random draw.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister hopes you'll find a way to add Washi tape to your project so you can earn another chance of winning our randomly drawn prize. (I added it to the inside of the card.)

After die-cutting the "pumpkin-man" I colored him with markers followed by die-cutting the cat from black cardstock and adding two googly eyes. Onto a white card base, I added the patterned background paper. Using a rectangular die set, I cut two additional panels from patterned paper, adhering them to the card. The pumpkin-man and the cat were added with foam tape along with the sentiment. 

The inside of the card was decorated with paper imprinted with spiders and the word "Spooky" cut from a die. To adhere to Twisted Sister's optional challenge, I was given a strip of Washi tape from Trouble Maker. It has a spider web design and was added to the inside edge.

Be sure to visit the challenge blogs for 
DTC94 and CI530 to review the guidelines and play along. You could win a prize in the random draw!
