Halloween Card ~ Pickin' a Pumpkin (post #1)

If you follow my blog I'm sure you know by now but I LOVE to add a little here and a little there to a great image to make it fit my theme.
I have been wanting to use this cute little Crafty Sentiment freebie for a while now.  They gave it as a freebie a while back so we could use it in a challenge.  She is actually in an intertube and wearing a bathing suit. {I couldn't find her in their store to add a link}
Of course this is not bathing suit weather so I filled in the suit to give her a blouse.
Next I cut her out and nestled her behind this row of stamped pumpkins.
The sweet stitched tag is a cut that came with my Silhouette Portrait {it comes with 50}
And I am using the Verve Mini Bookplates to frame my Cardz TV sentiment.
Finally I colored it all up with Copics and added this beautiful Little Scrap Pieces ribbon.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Tag cut from Silhouette.
*Sentiment frame from the Mini Bookplate Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the "Happy Days" stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps.
*Girl image called At the Beach from Crafty Sentiments Designs
*Pumpkin stamp from CTMH.
*Ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces.
*Copic pens YR000, E13, YR04, G07 & 100(black).
*Memento tuxedo Black stamps pad.
May your day always be filled with love.

This whole card just made me smile and brought back fond memories of picking my own pumpkins growing up. Beautiful work and a wonderful way to use a summer image for a different season.
