Trick or Treat for the Dueling Darlings!

"Trick or Treat
Smell my feet,
Give me something
Sweet to eat!"
It's the October 15th and time for another duel between the Dueling Darling Divas and Dazzlers.  This month I'm hosting for the Divas along with my partner Paola for the Dazzlers.  We asked our team members to create a card celebrating Halloween using the elements in the kit we provided.

Included in my kit were the following items:
Stamped images: Recollections
Designer Paper: My Mind's Eye, "Wicked Mechant Malvado"
Ribbon: Recollections
Twine:  My Mind's Eye, Lime Twist
Embellishments: pewter brads, Skull and Crossbone brad, Spider and Ghost adhesive embellishments, clear buttons
Here is my card:

I also used the sketch from this week's MOJO Monday here:
In addition to creating a card we asked everyone to share their views on Halloween:  "Do you celebrate it?  If so what's your favorite part?  (Eating candy is NOT an optional answer...LOL).  Please share one or more for the following suggestions: a trick, a treat, a recipe, favorite costume, favorite decoration, fun times, etc....Pictures are always a welcome visual too!"
I do like to do a little decorating but so far haven't taken out my Halloween decorations.  I've been too busy cleaning and organizing my house for overnight guests coming on Sunday.  I'll be sure to have the decorations up before they arrive.  I just might make some Caramel Corn as an early Halloween treat for them!
Please check out the Diva's creations here:
