Color Combo: Gray Tangerine Mustard

This week's color combo is Basic Gray, Tangerine Tango, and More Mustard. Even though these colors lend themselves perfectly to Halloween, I decided to make a more general card.  I was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge this week.

This sketch is very versatile and can be done as a CAS or can be embellished with plenty of layering.  I matted both my background DSP and main image to add more color.
The sentiment is stamped on a curved banner that I made with the Bitty Banner Framelits by cutting only half way and then flipping the paper to cut the other side.  The curve repeats the circle and brings the card together.
