The background black and orange paper was created using makeup sponges and ink dabbed onto white card. I did the same with the sentiment plaque (which is edged in black). I have used an orange card blank, which is unusual in the fact that I usually only use white card blanks to work with.
I have used 2mm black ribbon to create the four "lines" and black lace for a slightly scalloped edge.
As much as the colours I have used are very Halloweeny, this is a birthday card. I hope she likes it.
