Clearly Inspired Challenge # 18 -- Color Challenge!!

 Hello! Happy Friday! Not only is it Friday, it is the first friday of the month which means it is time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge #18. This month we are challenging you to a color challenge!  The challenge is to use Shades of Orange and Black with an option of shades of Purple. Neutrals being white or cream. Nice, right? Perfect colors for October...maybe a little spooky, and maybe a little autumn. I wanted to do something different than a Halloween card, and I ended up not doing a card at all! I altered this cute little journal for my BFF. I was inspired by this great purple-grey dp collection called Restoration (crate paper), and I really wanted to use the October Stamp of the Month at Clear Dollar Stamps, Silly Goose. Which, by the way, can be yours FREE with a $50 purchase in the month of October. Yup! FREE!
