Inspiration in Action Case Contest

Ok, well I was lucky enough to come across this wonderful blog by Gretchen and what do I find but an Inspiration in Action Case Contest!  You need to head over to her blog and check out the rules and details.   http://gretchenbarron.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/07/new-catalog-case-contest.html.  Below is the item that I chose to case from the new SU! Idea Book and Catalog (I am soooo loving this book, I take it to bed with me every night---no joke!!)  I am in the mode right now for wanting to make items other than cards, so I was happy to come across this little box on pg. 21.  I changed mine by making it Halloween themed-next to Christmas, this is my favorite holiday!) 

I used my SU! Wicked Cool stamp set, and SU! colors of: black (embossed with the spiderweb folder by SU!), then inked with whisper white to make it stand out, cajun craze, perfect plum and whisper white.  I used some metallic black embossing powder around the edge of the "spooky" tag and the tag hanging from the handle.  Let me know what you think and if you we can have Christmas in July---then why not Halloween in July!!!
