Here's what I made for this challenge:

When I think of "orange and purple" I immediately think of Halloween thus my card!  Well ... I probably thought of Halloween since it's right around the corner.  Anyway ...  this is an A2 size card made from White Daisy cardstock.  I used a piece of the B & T paper from our Moonlight paper back for the front of the card cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  The side borders were cut using our Artiste cricut cartridge.  They can be found on page 31, A1, Shift, Accent 1, < ! > cut at 1" x 5 1/2" (using the Fit to Length key).  I cut them with Smokey Plum and Autumn Terracotta cardstock.

The sentiment and images came from our Creepy Creatures stamp set just LOVE this stamp set!  I stamped them with Smokey Plum ink and Black ink for the bats.  I popped up the ghost and vampire with 3D foam tape to give the card some dimension.
