VLVOct03 and StampinB's challenges

I made this box for the StampinB's #28 challenge, where Vicky Gould asks us to make a Halloween card. OK, I cheated - this is not a card, but it is for Halloween :) This box holds 2 pair of Halloween socks for my 3-yr old DGD that's going in the mail next week. I used the twick or tweet set on the tag punches and adhered them onto a 2x4 tag I made. The papers were from a glitter stack from Jo-Annes and the box was made from Tangerine Tango.
This card was made for the VLVOCT03 sketch challenge with a twist to use fabric on our cards. I used a couple pieces of denim and cut them out with Nestabilities. I colored the image (from stampabilities) with derwent wc pencils, embossing the whole image with clear after coloring. I used ballet blue, navy and PTI dsp, adding twill and some punched circles. I added a HOTP button brad and some punched navy cardstock, covered the CTMH liquid glass. The sticker is by DCWV.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday!
