...FriGhTFuL & DeLighTFuL...

I took a quick peek at the Mojo Monday sketch today...and it was sooooo calling to me...

and I'd had the Stampin' Celebration! October challenge bookmarked since Friday...

I just LoVeD the colors on this!

The orange, aqua, and that black and white ribbon on the top of the wreath?!?!  AwEsOMe!!

so...I made this....

I used the colors and the layout...except instead of putting it on a card....

I put it on a plastic card box and added a ribbon handle.

It will be soooooo cute when it's full of candy corn!

I could have shown you now, except that someone....who shall remain nameless but is 11, lives in my house, and who's name rhymes with Donnor....ate it all ;)

Here's a closer view of my's just embossed oval punches layered together....I love how the PTI sentiment pops embossed in white on that black paper.

Here's a close up of the ribbon handle/button detail.

I just cheated and glued it on...hopefully, the recipient won't get too aggressive swinging it around or they may send their candy corn flying...I personally wouldn't consider that a big loss (candy corn is some NASTY stuff!) but I know it would bring tears to the eyes of some people...again...with names that rhyme with Donnor....

I'm linking this up at Mojo Monday and Stampin' Celebration.

Thanks for looking!
