Yo Ho, Yo Ho, The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge Is For Me

I made this for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge. The challenge this week was to make a Halloween treat container using embossing. I found this template from Qbee on Splitcoast to make a Mayflower ship. I changed to into a pirate ship. When I was at Target, I saw these great little skeletons in the Halloween aisle.

The base of the ship was embossed using the Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The sails are cut from Nestabilities Labels 4 and 1.The skull and cross bones is a Martha Stewart punch. All of the pieces were sponged with Tim Hotlz Antique Linen Distress Ink. I put a little scarf on top of my skeleton's head. After I put him in his ship, I filled it up with some candy.

Paper: Bazzill, The Paper Company, Petaloo
Ink: Tim Holtz-Antique Linen
Misc: Swirls embossing folder, nestabilities, paper punches, paper crinkle shred, candy, sticky strip, black fabric, pop up dots
