Dies R Us October Challenge (Team A)-"Gift Tags"

Hi there!
It's time once again for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme this month for Team A is "Gft Tags"!   
Ok, friends, get out those fabulous fun dies and make gift tags, which can be birthday, wedding, Christmas, or Halloween!  You have until October 13th to enter.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Dies R Us store!  So, come on over and join in on the fun!

For my card, I started with a black card base.  It was then paired with Doodlebug paper.  I used distress inks on water color paper and masked the sun.  The majority of the dies are from Taylored Expressions and the Lacey Square die on the decorated black box for the tag is from Spellbinder's.  The black box was only about a $1 from Michael's and it can hold some sweet treats for that special little trick-or-treater!  The twine and paper clips are from Doodlebug, also.  And,  I must ask...Do you get into the Halloween candy?  Uh huh...well, I do!:-)  And, I have to tell ya my new fav is the Hershey's milk chocolate with toffee and almonds...mmm!  

The dies listed above can be purchased at the Dies R Us Store.
And, here is the list of dies that I used today...
