Orange and Black Challenges

Good morning. I seldom show 2 cards in one post but since these cards and supplies are similar,  I am going to include both in this post.
The first card is one that I made for Cheery Lynn challenge to use Black and Orange and at least one Cheery Lynn die. I used the Kiwi Doily Die and Olive Branch Die. The Owl is a Northwoods stamp and the sentiment stamp from MFP's I'm Going Batty set. Also used Corner Punch, Spellbinder Circle dies, and Label 4 die.  Finished with bit of ribbon and some dewdrops.  Pattern Paper is from Echo Park Apothecary Emporium.
Challenges to enter:
Cheery Lynn: Black and Orange   I WON!!!!!
Simon Says: Use dies and/or punches
No Matter Which Challenge: Halloween Creations or Halloween Colors
My second card was also made for Halloween and a Black and Orange  challenge and I used the same stamps and most of the same supplies but added a border with Martha Stewart punch Drippy Goo and some confetti spiders. Embossed the orange mat with Cuttlebug EF Forest Branches.

Challenges to enter:
Cards For Men: Orange and Black
One Stop Craft: Heat embossing
Paper Pretties: Halloween
Stamptacular: BOO-tacular

Supplies in both cards:
Stamps: Northwoods Owl and MFP's I'm Going Batty
Inks: Versamark for Embossing the Owl, Memento Tangelo and Gray Flannel for sponging the image, and Memento Tuxedo Black for Sentiment
Black Embossing Powder
Papers: Glossy White CS, Oranges and Black CS all from stash

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa

That owl is amazing! Love both cards. Thanks for the Anniversary wishes, and if I remember correctly yours is today, also?

We have had to cancel all of our plans, including the stamp show in York, but the flu waits for no one. LOL. Hard to believe it is day 10 and so nasty.
