Scarecrow say Hi

Hi - I'm back with my third Halloween card! This is amazing as I have never before made a Halloween card but have really enjoyed using all the bright Halloween colours. I decide to make this one for my friends daughter who is away a university, just to say "Hello" and make her smile.
This lovely digi is from Dearie Dolls  - He is so seasonal and I so enjoyed colouring him using my copics. I don't know whether its easy to see but I have covered the background paper with a fine orange mesh which actually came from a bag of satsumas - hows that for recycling! I added some contrasting card candi  and A hello sentiment. The little cat button I have had for years so was glad to put it to use at last. The pumpkin embellishment is from my stash.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
