Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! They just fly by, don't they?

I am still working on finishing up my Halloween cards, and I thought a Shadowbox card might be fun (Dawn's tutorial here). I have included the October DD/DDA challenge into this as well. We were to make a Halloween card without any pumpkins, but had to include google eyes. The DoodleFactory line of stamps from Starving Artistamps are perfect for google eyes (IMHO).

I have used stamps from my DoodleFactory Halloween, and Halloween II sets to made this. I haven't used eyelets in soooo long, and I think I got my workout here (I used the older method to place them all). My Coluzzle with the Oval template was used for the cut out window, and my Scor-Pal for the perfect scores. The candy has Dew Drops for added sparkle and dimension, and the tag is from the Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
