Paper Cutz Challenge #111--Shake, Rattle, and Roll

IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!  WOOHOO!!!!!  I LOVE Fridays, but I especially love THIS Friday!  I'm flying to Arkansas today to spend the weekend with my oldest son and my parents for a late birthday celebration for my son and my dad.  Before I leave, though, it's time for a new challenge at the Paper Cutz Challenge!

This week, the title of our challenge is "Shake, Rattle, and Roll," and we're asking you to create a project with a hand stamped, digital stamped, or Cricut cut image of a skeleton or a skull and crossbones, but we want it to be cute--NOT SPOOKY!!  I used a play on words from the phrase "Trick or Treat" to create my card:

The skull and crossbones on the front and treasure chest on the inside are both from a stamp set I found in my stash.  I COMPLETELY forgot I had it!!  I stamped the skull and crossbones twice and used pop dots to add some dimension to it.  The treasure map island came from a piece of patterned paper I ALSO found in my stash, and I cut out what I wanted to use, adhered it to cardstock, and then used pop dots (AGAIN!) to make it stand off the page.  The brads were ones I found in my stash, and I accented the skull cap, treasure chest, and the word "Treasure" with my Stickles.

What can YOU create with a skeleton or skull and crossbones??  We'd LOVE to see it!!  Be sure you get your project linked up at the Paper Cutz Challenge by Thursday, October 6.  Happy scrapping!

Great card. Love that treasure map! Don't you just love it when you find crafting goodies stashed way somewhere that you forgot about. :)

Oops! This is where I was meant to comment. Have just finished the Paper Cutz challenge and was looking through the DT work. The map card is just fantastic. x
