For the limited challenge, we were to use Halloween colors. I just received my new quilt magazine, it had these great Halloween quilts and I took my inspiration from my magazine.
I started with pumpkin pie as the base. I layered with DCWV textured purple cs. I ran the CB Swiss Dot folder through caramel cs. I was given some top notes cut outs from one of pen pals here on SCS. I used a medium square punch on different Halloween dp's that I received from my twin sister (okstamper). I adhered all the squares onto the top and cut the access off. I then used a black sharpie and marked criss crosses on the seams. I also ran the CB Houndtooth folder after I adhered all the squares. I stamped the spider web on caramel cs with black stazon, cut out and attached a spider brad for the center of the web onto the orange square. I attached orange ribbon underneath the top note. I also stamped the skull with black stazon on caramel cs, cut out and added googlie eyes. It's attached with a 3D square as well as the top note. I also stamped the sentiment with black stazon onto caramel cs, layered with DCWV textured purple cs. I added an orange mini brad on the corner. It's also raised with a 3D square.
After I was done with this, I noticed I had 5 embellishments, however I think the googlie eyes would count as one. I hope it was ok.
Thanks for the challenge, I'm glad I was able to play tonight even on a work night.

WOW! Connie, this is great! It turned out really cute and glad that you found the inspiration from your quilt magazine. Nicely done with the googlie eyes too.
