  4. Hi marie,
    fantastic colouring on the image love the shadow on the hat.
    Very cute card.

  5. The contrast of the moon and the pumpkin are wonderful but I really love the tree branches jutting out from the blue/black sky. WONDERFUL vintage feel to this Halloween/Fall card.
    Another lovely eye candy from you.
