Today I have another Halloween Project to share with you. I am using the Spooky Project Pantry kit and  Spooky A la Carte, just one of the A la Crate words this month and designed by Nancy McKinney.  

I created another card and treat box combo! I am going to be ready to go on October 31st! My papers and ribbon are part of the Spooky Project Pantry.

I stamped Spooky in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics. I cut the sentiment into a long rectangle shape and punched slits at each end to run my ribbon through. 

I used the Take Note Die 3 behind the sentiment and added two orange rhinestones. At the bottom I added a cute fence cut with the new Spooky Fence Border Die.

Then I created a little treat holder to coordinate with my card using one of the die cut favor boxes from the Taylored Expression Store. I used the Spooky Al a Carte stamp again, paper and ribbon from the Spooky Project Pantry and twine and a button from my stash.

Tomorrow is release day!! I will be back with a "fall" project! Be sure to stop by all the designer's blogs today for lots of inspiration!
