Here's some inspiration from the IPC Design Team:

Diane Morales uses the challenge colors for this sweet, autumn scene.  Using the Frames Squared die set, Diane makes a scallop-square card base. She then uses a plaid paper from the Autumn paper pad for her sky and makes her grass using the Land Borders die set.  Enjoying this nice autumn day is one of the darling mice from the Autumn Mice stamp and die set. So cute!

Be thankful by Sue features Beautiful Blossoms, Autumn Newton, and Speech Bubbles by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #thankyoucards, #cardmaking
Sue T. opts to use the challenge colors for a gorgeous floral card. She uses the large speech bubble die (Speech Bubbles die set) to make her black element and adds beautiful flowers using images from the Beautiful Blossoms stamp and die set. On her cream card base, she stamps "Be Thankful" using a sentiment from the Autumn Newton stamp set.  Beautiful!

Fab(boo)lous by Amy features Witchy Newton, Spooky Roundabout, Halloween Trio, Oval Frames, Banner Trio, Frames & Flags, and Halloween Woofs by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #catcards, #cardmaking
Amy Tollner was inspired to use the colors for this bright, not-too-spooky Halloween card! She colors the kitty witch's boot (Witchy Newton stamp and die set) in a bright green and places it on a vellum oval (Oval Frames die set).  She pulls the batty paper from the Halloween Woofs paper pad cut using the scallop-edged frame die (Frames & Flags die set).  She heat embosses the white sentiment (Spooky Roundabout stamp set) on a black banner (Banner Trio die set).  She finishes it off with a couple of spooky bats (Halloween Trio Die set).  Fab(boo)lous!

Claire Lamb is showcasing her incredible ability to create spook-tacular backgrounds! She adds some trees (Forest Scene Builder die set) to her full-moon scene and uses the Land Borders die set to create her ground. Two critters decked out in their costumes from the Halloween Pile stamp and die set bravely walk through the scene escorted by a trio of bats. To finish off her card, Claire pulls a sentiment from the Spiderweb Oval stamp set. 

Made for each other by Debbie features Creepy Cameos, Franken-Newton, Framework, and Halloween Meows by Newton's Nook Designs; #inkypaws, #newtonsnook, #halloweencards, #catcards, #cardmaking
 Debbie Owens' Halloween card looks like it's set in a hallway manor. She creates her scene using the green-striped wallpaper from the Halloween Meows paper pad. Deb cuts the paper using the postage-edge die from the Framework die set. Look at the portrait of the Bride of Franken-Newton (Franken-Newton stamp set) in her spooky frame (Creepy Cameos retiring stamp set, which is on sale for $4.99!). Enjoying that portrait is our very own Franken-Newton as he shambles down the hallway!  So clever!

Use the colors-Orange, Green, Black, & Cream.
