Halloween Pumpkins

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a good start.  My hubby and I took a long weekend and went to Albuquerque, NM for the hot-air balloon festival.  It was fantastic!  Hence why this post is a few hours late.

Here I have for you, my DT card for the GGSC (Going Grey w/Scrap Creations) blog.  This week's theme is PUMPKINS and with the fall season under way and Halloween getting so close, we had better get ourselves in gear.  So head on over there and get inspired by my oh-so-fabulous teamies and their awesome creations.

Here is the card I created using an image by Milk Coffee called Lisbeth Halloween.  She is a digital image that I won, along with two others, on the Card Crafter's Circle challenge blog.  Milk Coffee also has a challenge blog that I will enter this card into.
My background papers are from Bearly Mine and believe it or not, were freebies.  Donna has a couple of wonderful sites where she has give-aways and free papers to scoop up on, as well as her gorgeous paper sets for purchase.  She too has a challenge blog that my card will be entered into this week.  Oh, and I can't forget the layout.  It is done up via Cordine's sketch from the Sketchy Challenges.

I'm still working on taking better photos.  I have taken so many of this card that I ran my camera out of batteries.  I tried all different times of the day, indoors, outdoors, flash, no flash...  I don't know what to try next except to do some research on the Internet.  I'm thinking the colors I used to color my image may be a contributor to why Lisbeth is a bit blurry, but I can tell you that the actual image is not that bright.  Maybe a white background would work better?

Thank you so much for your visit!  If you're curious, more of what I used to make this card is at the bottom of the post.  Have a wonderful day and even better tomorrows!

♥ Laura C.
