♥ A Halloween Card and Treat Box! ♥

Hi Friends! I have missed crafting so much that I am squeezing in some time for a little fun in between changing diapers, cleaning my home, laundry, cooking, running errands, you know all that other FUN STUFF!! LOL Here is a fun little Halloween set I made. I will be giving this to my 4 yr old son. I will probably fill the little box with some candy (not too much since he will be trick or treating!)and maybe some money so he can go and visit Toys R' Us for a little something! (Most likely a Thomas train!!)
I made the little pumpkin on the box using a styrofoam ball which I covered in some orange glitter, used some The Girls Paperie paper for his eyes, nose and mouth, added some ribbon hair and a little mini witches hat which I made from black cs, covered in glitter and topped off with a sheer ribbon bow. The box is also covered with some Girls Paperie paper, some crocheted ribbon and satin ribbon bow.
For the card, I used some more Girls Paperie paper, a Crafty Secrets cutout which I added more glitter to, some burlap and more crocheted and satin ribbon.
I made this for this week's challenges over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings which was to make a Halloween card and/or Treat bag or box. I also used this week's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You and I also used today's Ways to Use it Challenge over at SCS which was to use fabric on your card (does burlap count??). And last but not least, I used this week's challenge over at the City Crafter Challenge blog, which was to make a card/project that has a vintage feel to it!

Here is the 2S4Y sketch:
