Try Not To "Gourd" Yourself On Treats

Good day, traveller. Today a raven arrived from the distant village of Gourdlington. It seems some unknown miscreant was sneaking into the fields under the cover of night and smashing all the pumpkins. This was a problem for the small village, as the pumpkin patches are how they earn their gold coins, with the Night of Sweet Delights being their most important event. Gourdlington is more than two days ride, and we would never make it in time to stop the destruction of every pumpkin in the field. Fortunately, Guild Apprentice Lindsay was in a nearby town, distributing treat receptacles the Crafters Guild had recently created for the impoverished children. 

This was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines October Challenge that is happening now! The theme this month is Halloween. Come play along with a JSL image for a chance to win a digi!

I started this project by colouring the Just Some Lines image with Prismacolor pencils, going against my usual style and not blending it with the Gamsol. I then cut the box out using the Mini Monster cartridge. 
Before assembling the box, I adhered the image and stamped a sentiment on the back using the Unity “Haunted House Halloween” set. Lastly I added some fun orange crinkle ribbon (thanks Karen!) for the handle of the box. 
Last thing I did...was eat all that candy in the picture, earning myself +500 calorie exp points NOM NOM NOM!!!

This little treat container will canvas for some goodies in the following challenges:
Luckily my raven reached Lindsay in time and she was able to make it to Gourdlington and, with the help of the villagers and some crafty cloaking spells, set up a sting to catch the pumpkin smashing fiend, thereby saving the realm’s pumpkin supply.
