Challenge #21 - Cards for Men - "Orange and Black"

Good Morning All, I hope youve all have a brilliant weekend and the weather hasnt been to wet in your district, its certainly been so here. Anyway to cheer you up this fortnights challenge for Cards for Men is "Orange and Black" and we are being sponsored by Kenny K

And they are offering a fabulous prize of 4 digis of your own choice, and this is what they say about themselves.
I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey, http://www.kennykdownloads.com/about-kenny-and-elena.php
And we were lucky enough to have been given several images to play with and I chose this one,
and she is called "Trixxie Treat" and you will find her here, Ive printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out with the large rectangle die from Spellbinders and used a larger one for her mount.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first moung of orange card, and the sentiment paper I have used is from Donna's "Halloween" digi paper set, on top of this I have placed firstly a Memory Box Sprider frame towards the left and in the top right hand corner I have used a spiderweb die with a spider and stuck them down there. I also used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out the pumpkin border at the bottom, all these were cut from orange card.
I then positioned my mounted image slightly to the right of the frame, and to finish of I have used Memory Box spook diecuts down the side.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop over to the  Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and hopefully you will be inspired enough to take part in this "Orange and Black" Challenge yourself.
