TH Skull & Crossbones Carved Pumpkin w/ Tatt Leaves Halloween Card

Please click here to check out my Halloween w/ Prize Giveaway 9/19 - 10/3. 

Used mostly Tim Holtz items to make this Halloween card. 
The TH Pumpkin die allows for you to place other dies inside the pumpkin area to make it looked like a carved pumpkin. I knew I had TH Jack O' Lantern dies to put inside the pumpkin but then remembered I had the Skull & Crossbones and like how it turned out.  Added raffia. Added Skull & Crossbones metal embellishment.
