Its time for My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge #29. This week we have a COLOR CHALLENGE for you. Simply use the color BLACK with ORANGE, PURPLE or GREEN on your project. 

I opted to go with ALL four colors: BLACK, ORANGE, PURPLE & GREEN on my Halloween Wishes Cauldron.

I combined this week's My Craft Spot COLOR CHALLENGE with this week's FCCB Challenge Me Monday #81. For more information on FCCB's challenge and FULL details(sizes and such) on my Halloween Wishes Cauldron, click HERE.

For ORANGE, I used my last piece of "Pumpkin Spice" Crinkled Ribbon. This color is just amazing and perfect for any halloween or fall project. And the best part is its ONLY $9.99 for a bundle of 3 colors; 1 yard each!

A PURPLE button centers my double-loop crinkled bow.

And a BLACK spider hangs from some "Spring GREEN" Bakers Twine - available at My Craft Spot for ONLY $9.99 a set of 5 colors; 10 yards each! 

Recognize the sentiment? No? Well, its part of the My Craft Spot "Candy Corn Kisses" Stamp Set.

I took the "Candy Corn Kisses Halloween Wishes" sentiment and only stamped the "Halloween Wishes" into two different pieces of white cardstock.
