Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet, Give Me Something Good to Craft with...

Everyone loves a nice treat on Halloween. Read through my post for your chance to win a very nice treat!
I was in the mood for some Halloween decorations---handmade, that is. I had been saving a beautiful box from last Christmas that seemed perfect for a shadow box. Using Rick St Dennis' Death on Saturday Night, I colored then fussy-cut his image. I created the scene with patterned paper from my stash (DCWV stack). The moon, fence and sentiment are all stickers I snagged at a craft convention.
I definitely wanted a 3D effect, so my image is built with about 4-deep squares of dimensional dots. The pumpkin and headstone with just two dots.
Although good, I strived for great, so added some moss and stingy stuff that I had purchased a couple years ago in the floral aisle of a dollar store (using up my stash, one project at a time). My shadow box. is 1-1/2" deep, and 15x6 inches around. It's very lightweight, and can be set on a shelf or hung on a wall. Right now it's in my craft room, but will go on my Facebook page to see if anyone likes it enough to purchase it. (This is a new experiment for me. My friends have always said 'Oh you should sell your stuff' so I'm going to see if anything is salable on FB before I invest in Etsy)
