MCT Designer Challenge

We're having another designer challenge at My Creative Time, using the photo below for color/theme inspiration!  This week I was putting together a little care package to send off to my son at college, and since it included a gift card, I decided to make him a cute gift card holder using the colors and the theme!

Since the gift card is for a restaurant, I thought this sentiment from the new Trick or Treat stamp set would be just perfect!  I also added some stars from the same set.

I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug Spiderweb embossing folder.  That cute gray frame was made with one of the dies from Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  Don't you love that jack o' lantern?  He's from the Treats for My Sweet stamp set.  I colored him with some Copic markers.  Then I added some bats made with the Wicked Fun Dies.

I added one last die from Wicked Fun Dies on the inside.  Couldn't resist that spider!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have for you today!
