Raven Halloween Bottle

My daughter's favorite holiday is Halloween. I made this bottle for her. Photographed it next to her metal Halloween Haunted House with led lights that she bought at Michaels this past weekend.

Heat embossed with black embossing powder Stampendous Raven stamp on vellum. Used red tape & washi tape to place vellum on bottle. Heat embossed with black embossing powder Tim Holtz Halloween ticket on Kraft brown cardstock. Tied Halloween ticket on with string.

Recycled Kraft packing/wrapping paper to put in bottle as a cork. 

Have selected the pattern for this year's Halloween styrofoam pumpkin that my hubby will bee carving. This yr's pumpkin is not Pirate theme like in the past. Keeping it a secret.
