Harvest Scarecrow

This scarecrow just makes me smile everytime I look at him. I found him on clearance last year at Hobby Lobby. It was hard to actually use him on a card at last! But I love making fall-themed cards, and since Halloween and Harvest festivals galore are already underway, it's time to get them made and sent.
This card lets me play in my first few card challenges in a long while since I've been back in blogland. They are as follows:
1) My Time to Craft "Halloween Colors"
2) One Stop Craft Challenge #51 "Halloween"
3) Truly Scrumptious Challenge/Sketch 18 "Autumn theme"
4) Daring Cardmakers "A Few of My Favorite Things"
Favorite things used on this card:
Autumn theme and colors!
Cute scarecrow with a BUTTON
Cuttlebug and "Swiss Dots" embossing folder"
Some light distressing with brown pigment ink (sometimes I just can't help myself!)
Medium-sized neutral brads
Cardstock from DCWV "Green Stack". And it has cute owls.
3-D elements
Rub-on sentiment from American Crafts
Striped paper from My Mind's Eye--possibly my favorite paper company... but I'd better not limit myself... I just love paper, period.
Brown cardstock--my #1 crafting must-have!
Mr. Scarecrow and his Crow buddie... in a natural habitat...
Thanks for visiting!
