Halloween Pillow Box

I finally got my Art Philosophy cartridge and could not wait to create something with it.  Here is what I came up with, a pretty simple project, but I am really happy with the way it came out.

Isn't this witch stamp just fabulous!!  It is from the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month "Wicked".  I got it for $5.00, since I ordered the Art Philosophy Collection.  Here is a close up:

I stamped her in black ink and then heat embossed with black.  It is a little sloppy as I have not heat embossed in a long time, but I like the way it came out!!

Here is a close-up of the little tag:

Don't you just love this little sentiment!!  It is from BugBites first ever stamp set called "All Year Round"
I happened to win the set as a blog hop giveaway!!

Here is a list of the supplies I used:

CTMH Art Philosophy - Pillow Box, cut at fit to page 9 3/4", Tag cut at 2"
Cricut Happy Hauntings - Frame cut at 5.75" (I think)
Close to My Heart - Witch from "Wicked" stamp set
BugBites - Sentiment from "All Year Round" stamp set
Imaginise - background paper from "Hallowhimsey"
My Craft Spot - Crinkle Ribbon and Twine
Black Ink and embossing powder
Glitter Gel Pen
Coordinations Cardstock

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Hugs and Kisses, :)
