Magnolia-licious Highlites, Kellie's Sketch Challenge #2

Good evening everyone. Today I have lots of pictures to show you for the two challenges. The two challenges are for Magnolia-licious Highlites Tricks-n-Treats DT Blog Hop and Kellie's Sketch #2

Here is the sketch for Kellie's sketch for current challenge:

I choose Kellie's sketch also for part of my entry for Magnolia-licious Highlites' challenge as well.

Here is the picture for my full set. A card, a candy treat bag and a matching box of tags.

Here is the card I made using Magnolia Tilda, Prima flower, K & Co Halloween rhinestones, a stamp by Hero Art for the candy corn, Martha Stewart adhesive ribbon, cardstock by Stampin Up and DP by K & Co.

I just love this stack of DP. Since the DP is so cheerful and fun, I wanted to make it more toward the fun side rather than making it too scary. Instead of keeping Tilda's spider holding by her hand, I cut it out and altered a "BOO" sign for her to hold.
When I tried to think of a pole for Tilda to hold this "BOO" word, I couldn't find any cute poles. So what I did was that I got the Magnolia Fence background and cut out only one piece of the wood from the fence image and used it as her pole.

Closer view of Tilda and the upside down "Magnolia Fence" pole.

Here is the inside of the card:

Here is the treat bag (The front). I used an orange envelope and my Scor-Pal to score 1/2" each of the three sides of the envelope (two side edges and the bottom edge) to form this bag. The spider and the web were from my left over Jolee's sticker embellishments from last time.

"Back" side of the treat bag:

Here is the Matchbox. I made some tags to put in it. The image on these tags was the Surfer Edwin from the Lazy Summer Day series.

View of the closed matchbox.

This set took me a really long time to do, but I am happy with the result! I hope you enjoy the pictures I posted today and hope I will create more papercraft to post in the next few days.

Thank you for stopping by today and see you soon!

Hello Cabio,
Your Halloween Card, Treat Bag and Matchbox are so cute. I love how Tilda is holding the sign with BOO on it!! And I also love the DP's that you used!! I used the same ones for my card too!!LOL!! I'm going to try to make a treat bag out of an envelope. That's a great idea!! It is amazing how much time it takes to make these projects, but it shows in your wonderful set!!
