Happy Pumpkin Day

Went shopping at this morning.  Found this cute Scary Bear svg set and cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo.  Added some bats and the trick or treat bag that was cut out with a Cricut cartridge.  Card base was cut out using Spellbinders Labels 8 dies.   Used a white gel pen for the eyes on the bear and bats.  Mounted bear and bats to card base with pop dots.
