Shabby Scarecrow

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a card inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “Scare-in’ Up Some Pumpkins” – you can either use scarecrows or pumpkins or both on DD_Scarecrowsyour creation. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I was inspired by the scarecrows and sunflowers in the bottom right picture. The adorable scarecrow on my card is a Cottage Cutz die and I decided to give him a shabby look. To put this handsome guy together took a long time but I used up little scraps of paper that was cluttering my desk, I added a few sunflowers, a trellis, small butterflies and bows to embellish the card. I finished off with a sentiment from Creative Expressions. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    ADORABLE!!! You & Diane are on the same wave length and must have the patience of a saint to put these together … I on the other hand would probably have ended up with HALF a scarecrow! LOL Fantastic creation! Love the little bird, the sunflowers, the birdhouse … oh let’s face it … love it all!!
    Sorry for the late comment … been out furniture shopping in Amish country all day ugh! Fun but exhausting! LOL

    You and Diane both used Cottage Cutz scarecrows. Gosh, I love this one, too! Small, fiddly parts will make me crazy, but so cute the way it comes out. Your whole card design is outstandingly adorable for fall!
