Pumpkin Parade

Hi All!  I bet you're shocked to see another Halloween card huh?  In my defense this one was actually an order- a coworker saw a pic on my phone of the colored image (Trixxie Treat from Kenny K) and said "I want that!".  When I told her that I hadn't made a card with it yet and she said "I know but I want you to make one because I want it!", lol!  So I grabbed the Doodlebug Design Halloween papers that I'd colored her to match and got right down to business :)  I knew that this card was going to be hand delivered so I got to go all out with my embellishments...I of course have some signature bling on there, along with some flowers and some cheesecloth- I think it kind of has that spider-webby (and yes, that's the technical term, lol) look to it no? 

And I thought I'd throw just a quick note in about the coloring- her hair is done in Neutral Grey's but I laid down a base color of BV01 to give the highlights a purplish hue to kind of reflect the color of her dress and hat.  I was worried it might get lost in the 'black' of the hair but I'm fairly pleased with the finished result. 

Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R30, R32, BV31, BV34
Hair: BV01, N1, N5, N7, N9, 100
Clothes: BV02, BV13, BV17, BV08, YG03, YG17, N3, N5, N7
