Here is my take on the color challenge.

Happy Halloween card

I have used Stampendous Halloween stamp set to make my Halloween card. I started with die cutting a stitched rectangle panel using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle set. Then I masked and heat embossed the pumpkins and the spider webs. I coloured them and the background using zig clean brush pens. 
For the layering paper, I die cut two more watercolour paper and watercoloured them using Zig Clean Brush pens picking the colours from the colour challenge. Once dry, I layered these panels. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set which I stamped and heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives.

I placed this layered panel on a white cardbase. The base was too plain to my liking. So I stamped some spider webs on the corners and in the middle to make them peek out from behind the panels.  I embellished the card with Pretty Pink Posh's Tangerine and Amethyst sequins. Here is a closeup of the watercoloured panel.
