Pick o' the patch - AHSC #72

Today I bring to you a fun little Fall themed card. There was a chill in the air when I was making this card last night and it feeling very fall like so I was gravitating towards my fall themed products. Today we are back to a nice warm day!

This card came together so quickly it quite frankly stunned me. I wanted to work with my Timberline paper with the wood grain (I love this paper!) and I had every intention of using one of my all time favourite stamp sets called Always Grateful and do a nature themed project with fall colours and all that pretty stuff but that did not happen. As I was looking for the Always Grateful stamp set I came across this stamp set, it was a former stamp of the month and this little scarecrow just screamed at me to create with him...so I did. 

I stamped him in Cocoa ink and coloured him in using CTMH's Watercolour pencils and water blending pen. It was a super easy and quick card to make and I had a lot of fun making it.

Love, love, love it.....I was thinking about pulling him out to make a few themed cards.....think I might just do that today.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Lovely! I love the whole "scene" of your card - everything ties together so seamlessly.
