So Thankful for You!

It is Fall Y'all! Or at least it feels like it in my part of the country. Temps are in the 60's and the leaves are starting to change colors.
Today, I have a card for you using a file from KaDoodle Bug Designs called No Place Like Home.
I had to take the scarecrow off of the Yellow Brick Road.
The card is a basic A2 size with a background paper from Doodlebug's Happy Harvest from 2013. I enlarged the scarecrow in my Silhouette DE software to fit the front. As I cut the pieces, I inked my edge for that much needed dimension (I can't make a card without doing it!). For the face, I dug through my Peachy Keen face assortments and decided on the Christmas in July Face set. To finish off the scarecrow, I inked the cheeks and added some doodling with my white gel pen.

The sentiment had to be something to reflect fall and I think we always associate fall with gratitude, right?! For this, I die cut a Spellbinders' Scalloped Oval and stamped it using My Craft Spot's Simply Sentiment stamp set. After inking the edge of the die, I added the Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine bow. Both the scarecrow and the sentiment were then pop dotted to the front of the card.

Supplies Used:
KaDoodle Bug Designs: No Place Like Home
Trendy Twine: Chocolate Truffle
My Craft Spot: Simply Sentiments
Doodlebug Designs: Happy Harvest 6x6 paper pad (2013)
