Tuesday Morning Sketches #63

Good Morning!  I have such a fun challenge for you over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This one I called "Trick or Treat, smell my feet.  Give me something good to eat!"  Haha!!  It's all about yummy treats and packaging.  This challenge is being sponsored by Deedee's Digis.

I picked up a package of Ferrero Rocher candy because I wanted to show you how easy it is to dress up an already pretty package.  This type of packaging is for those moments when you are short on time but you still want to present a special gift to someone.  So I cut a frame that I got from Penny Duncan Creations and made sure it was smaller than the packaging so the beautiful gold of box became part of the design.

I used one of Deedee's newest digis called Halloween Hoot - which is such a great image for this time of year.  But it's so versatile in that, if you wanted to use a leaf punch and punch out lots of leaves in different colored card stock and stick them to the branches - you can also use this image as an adorable Autumn card.

Here's a side view so you can see the yummy candy.  This was so super simple to do.  So the next time you're in a pinch with time, like my Dad always said, work smarter - not harder.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections)
Copics:  100, C8, C10, E29, E37, E53, E57, W-3, Y17, YG63, YR16 and Cream (Prismacolor)
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, SVG cut by Penny Duncan, Labels One nesties (Spellbinders)

I hope you join us in the challenge this week.  It will be a lot of fun!  I can't wait to see what you make.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!
