No BRAINS about it....I WANT Candy!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Good afternoon my crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous day :)
I have a fun Halloween card and treat to share today with you. I wanted to play in some of the challenges going on so I thought I would combine a few and join in :)
Hope you are inspired: 
I cut the base for my card and followed with a black base layer which I distressed the edges with the Zutter DIA. The orange layer was embossed with the chevron embossing folder and adhered in place. I cut a smaller piece of pattern paper that was in my scraps, distressed the edges and put in place.
The skeleton is from PK-1422  Poseable Skeleton stamp set. After stamping, I fussy cut around it, colored in and then used Wink of Stella for a little shimmer effect and glossy accents for the eyes. I used foam adhesives for some dimension.
Isn't the skeleton a little freaky/scary lookin'?
Did it spook you, hehe!
The label and sentiment is from PK-1423 Halloween Sentiments and Labels stamp set. The spiders are from My Craft Spot's Halloween Shapes metal dies set which are hanging from Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine....the googly eyes from my stash. Along the bottom, I wrapped more of  Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine and tied a bow. I used My Craft Spot's Fancy Edges Halloween metal die set for the Happy Halloween. 
I also made a small treat to go along with the card:
The candy tube was filled with peanut butter M & M's..yum!! I wrapped Halloween Orange Licorice twine around and tied on a fun little tag. The tag is from My Creative Time's Stitched Round Tab, Arrow Tag metal die. I stamped the sentiment with the Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set and again the spider is from Halloween Shapes metal die set.  I finished by tying on a Golden Harvest crinkle ribbon bow, a twine bow and fun button from Recollections.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) DoubleClick Use 2 colors-Orange/Black
2.) Sweet Stamps Challenge #192 Anything Goes
3.) Trendy Twine October Boo-tiful Treats
4.) Pumpkin Spice Challenge #88 Fall or Halloween
5.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Halloween
6.) My Creative Time Designer Challenge  Photo/Color Inspiration
