Got Candy? Card

Today I made this cute, yet simple halloween card.
I am entering this card into these challenges:

How fits into the challenges:
Cardz TV - Halloween... Its a halloween card :)
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Try something new... This was my first attempt at a shaker box (the big candy) and making my own little candies (the 3 pink candies)
Cooking It Up With Katie - 3 papers, something clear & inspired by a song... I used 3 different papers (black, light orange, pumpkin orange), I used clear plastic over my big candy shaker box, and it is inspired by I Want Candy - Bow Wow Wow.

How I made It:
To make the large main candy (the big black one with glitter) I cut the image with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot, then I put some glitter (black, orange and white) in the center of the candy. I then covered the black candy with some clear plastic wrapper (which I have been saving for no reason what so ever lol) and glued around the edges of the circular area and held the plastic down. I tied some thin orange ribbon around the area where it would be twisted if it were normal candy and thats about it. I was going for a "shaker box" effect with this.. not too bad for my first time (sadly the glitter doesn't move quite how I'd like, it kinda sticks to the plastic stuff). The little pink candies down the top right side I made with an actual candy wrapper.. I rolled up a little ball of paper and then put it in the wrapper, then I twisted the wrapper around the paper. It was also my first time trying to make little candies.. also not too bad :). I distressed the background with black ink. I free hand cut the "Got Candy?" tag out of some orange paper I got in a pack of scrap paper. I distressed the tag with orange ink around the edges and free handed "Got Candy?". The little bag was cut with Create A Critter in two different shades of orange and I free handed the pumpkin face with an orange Zig marker.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
