Halloween challenge over at RoP/BnW

Happy Monday to you all! Hope you had a great weekend. We def. did.
We got to spend a lot of time outdoors in the crisp, fresh and cold Autumn air.
And yes - we even got the winter tires on - so we are ready for the snow ;-)

This time it's our supertalented Iris who has set the challenge over at our RoP/BnW site. We should create something for Halloween - card, invitation or treat bag . Well - I have always wanted to make one of these coaster boxes - and this time I decided to do one.
So I got my bind-it-all-machine out (it's collecting a lot of dust - don't know why, but....), my light-weight coasters that I got from Angie Juda. I covered the coasters with 4 x 4 of the Eerie DPs. Sanded the edges so that the DPs and the coasters became one ;-)
Punched the wholes with my bind-it-all, tied the 4 pieces together with ribbon from my stash. Glued the 5th coaster to the 4 sides and there I had the bottom of the box.
Coloured the image of Sitting Mimosa with my copics and cut her out. Wanted to show you that you can use a stamp that is not typical Halloween and still create the feeling of it - by using the DPs as the background scene. Added a couple of scary brads ;-) from Basic Grey.
I just put a little candle in the center - and then you can use it as the decoration for your Halloween party - or you can fill it with tons of candy. The choice is yours.
Well - hope you like it and want to play with us.
Kram and make sure that you check the rest of the DTs creations.

Oh Anki, this is a fabulous idea, and you have done a gorgeous job with it! It's almost "spooky" other than the adorable little Mimosa girl, of course she is not scary at all. ha ha
I just love everything you did here.

Too sweet! I almost used this image because I'm so in love with her! You colored her so beautifully and the papers on the outside are fabulous! Love the candle holder and aren't they fun to make? Just precious!
