Dancing Pumpkin Head...

This is my last Halloween card this year... 
When A Day For Daisies  came up with her in the latest release, I loved the possibilities.  I printed 3 copies so that I could 'paper sculpt' the image.  Layers were colored with Copics.  The pinafore was paper pieced but also elevated on foam tape.  The 'brambles' are from a Tim Holtz die cut. Three Candi's were colored with Copics and added to the corners.  Final step was the bow on the front.
