Crafting When We Can #5 Halloween and/or anything but a card

Only one more sleep before all the ghosts, ghouls and witches come out to play so this time at CWWC we'd like to see your Halloween creations or if Halloween isn't your thing anything but a card. We are being sponsored by The Poodles Parlour and the DT were given images to work with, I was given JoJo Halloween:

I opted to make a treat bag. I'd made a pile of bags several weeks ago with BP from Bearly Mine and this was the last one needing decorated - couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the image with it's dotty hat, this paper was obviously meant for it. Image is coloured with promarkers, cut out and mounted onto a nestie oval and scalloped oval die from my bit box. Bag is filled with treats and tied with 2 strands of bakers twine twisted together then finished off with a flower and ticket - leftovers from a Crafter's Companion download.
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see my team mates creations, you won't be disappointed.
