Halloween card

We have a boy and girl a few doors from us who every year come dressed up for Trick or Treat, they are lovely children, so I usually make something like a treat box or cover chocolate in halloween paper etc.  This year for a change I decided to make a halloween card for them.  This may sound understated by my USA friends, but halloween isn't that big around here, except for a few youngsters who have taken it on.  The card is wonderful photo type paper from Cuddly Buddly, it just makes colours come alive.  The scarecrow Mr Straw is by Digital Delights and the pumpkins and straw bale is by Laurie Furnell, I purchased it a few years ago from PC Hug Bug.  Mr Scarecrow has been coloured in PS, the pumpkin and straw image was already coloured.  The background paper is Bootiful Night from Summertime Designs.  I cut out and 3D'd the main images.
I shall be makng a few more items for them and other chidren who come to the door. I love to see their faces when I give them something made for the occasion. I hope to post what I make for them soon.

I shall be entering the card in to the   Halloween or Fall Cute cards for kids     Tricky or Halloween
