My Last FCCB challenge- Boo Spectacular

Wow I can't believe this is my last post for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  I have been so blessed to be on the FCCB design team for well over a year.  I have also helped with Thursday Tutorials and this term with Fantabulous Friday.   I love the challenges and DT members at FCCB.  So much talent, inspiration and fun.  
For the challenge this week it is the Boo Spectacular.  Make a project using black and orange.  
For my project I made a witch's hat using a paper mache form from Michaels.  I covered it with black glitter paper.  The ring for the underside and the top was made using my Gypsy and two different size circles from Accent Essentials.  The cone was paper cut and formed by hand.  
I then added feather trim around the base of the cone, Graphic 45 Happy Haunting paper, a bow, twine, and Spiral flowers made with the Art Philosophy cartridge cut at 2.75 inches and then formed with a quilling tool.  The edges were then inked and Stickles were added.  The vines under the flowers are from the Thanksgiving Cart.  
I gave this to the owner of the LSS where I teach classes.  We didn't have time to add it to the class list.  Several store patrons really wanted one so I made three more and sold them to raise money for the charity auction the store does in December for the Navy Relief.  Each is unique in its own way.  
I hope you will join us this week for the Boo Spectacular Challenge at FCCB.
