Now onto my project...
I shared a little sneak at the top of the post but here is my full tag.
I LOVE making them and thought I would keep this one simple, playing off the colors in the 
here it is....hope you like it!
This is how I put my tag together...
I started out using the PTI tag die and some white textured card stock. Next I pulled out my Tricks and Treats paper pad from Pebbles and found the two papers that matched the Trick or Treat Trendy Twine the closest. I only wanted a little color added to the tag so I cut and tore some of the designer paper and taped it to the bottom of my tag. 

Next, using my Cameo and a cute file from the Silhouette Store I cut the witch's hat and also cut a border piece so I could add the Trick or Treat TT behind the cuts and then have something to mount the hat to. To get the twine to stick on the back of the hat and cover the parts that were die cut, I ran some red line double sided tape along the back and also used some Tombow Mono Aqua liquid glue. Using cut pieces of the twine, I laid them side by side to cover the opening. After everything was dried, I popped the hat onto the mat and then glued it to my tag.

Finally to finish my tag, I used another PTI banner die and stamped my sentiment using an old Fiskars stamp set~Halloween Night.  I embellished the top with some Tuxedo 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon, a button from my stash and some more Trick or Treat TT.

Well there you have it...
I hope you like my tag :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Day!!!
I sure hope to see you play along in our challenge!!!
