Delightful Challenges

Hi everyone!  Good morning.  I love Thursday, we're on the down side of this week and it's nearing payday!  That's always good, right?

This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges, we're making Halloween Treats.  I went with a fun little gable box that I made following a tutorial on SCS.  I am so happy that I got the updated version of the Scor-Pal board, because it made it so easy to make it.

Isn't this fun?  As I said the Scor-Pal made it so easy to put this box together and of course, I wouldn't use any other adhesive but Scor-Tape to hold it all together.  I decorated the box with an image from Halloween Accessories and then added a gift tag that features a sentiment from Halloween Sentiments.  This is a perfect size box to fill with chocolates and candy corn.

To color it, I just colored in the grass with a dark green color, gray for the tombstone and yellow for the moon.  I then created a mask by printing the image again on a post it note, fussy cut it and then laid it over the main image and began sponging away.  It's slightly larger than the moon so that I could get a little moonglow around it.

I am also entering this into The Pink Elephant challenge, they're making Halloween Treats, too.  And I'll be barely in time for Crazy 4 Challenges challenge for Sweet Treats.  This is a popular challenge, don't forget Raisin Boat is also doing the same theme, too.
