Scream...It's Halloween!

Hi Friends! The weekend sure flew by quick. We got 3 inches of snow here on the front range Saturday but it was all gone by noon on Sunday. It sure doesn’t stick around at this time of year. It will be back in the 70s this week for our average temps in the Fall.   

My card I’m sharing with you today is for several challenges that have a Fall or Halloween theme. I used little “Witch Tilda” as my focal point and colored her with Copics. My DPs are from Doodle Bug Designs and Bo Bunny. I just love these papers, very Halloween festive.
My pumpkin stamp is from Paper Studio and the black cat is Making Memories. I stamped two pumpkins masking off the foreground. For the cat stamp, I heat embossed it with black embossing powder and cut it out. I authored the sentiment myself and used my Lettering Delights Harry (Harry Potter) font to go with the “witch” theme.
I die cut my Magnolia fence from both black and orange cardstock and adhered them together off centered to give it a dimensional effect. The flowers are from Prima with Perfect Pearls centers and crumpled Raffia under the pumpkins. I finished it off with some jute twine for a bow and a bit of Glossy Accents for Tilda’s boots and hat.
Here is the inside of my card with the rest of the sentiment.
And these are the Copics I used to color Tilda and the pumpkins.

I’m entering this card in the following Challenges:
