Happy Halloween.... MCT Trending Now {Color Blocking}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to
My Creative Time's Trending Now!
Today the DT is showcasing projects using the Color Blocking Technique

After google searching Color Blocking, I found this chart that I then used to make my card.
I went with Analogous Color Schemes.....which is using colors next to each other on the color wheel
I am hoping that I did this project correctly...LOL! 
Here is my Halloween card
To make my card, I started by die cutting 3 different color pieces of cardstock in close color ranges to one another using the largest of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Once I had the layout set up, I took the orange piece of cardstock, trimmed it down and then die cut the "Happy" sentiment out. I filled in some of the missing pieces in the wording but left other parts so you could see the yellow through it..looks kinda cool don't you think?
I stamped the "Halloween" sentiment under my die cut "Happy" and then embellished with some hemp twine and some matching sequins.

My Creative Time Products Used:
