Leafy scarecrow

   Another Friday and another challenge at QKR Stampede. This week we are asking you to use fall colours.
   I cut some paper printed from a Joanna Sheen CD ROM using a Tattered Lace notched square die and then inked it using distress inks before matting it onto core'dinations cardstock. I then wrapped ribbon (taken from a bouquet of flowers that I had received for my birthday) round the centre of this and matted it onto white card.
   I coloured the image called scarecrow and leaves (number 18806) using Promarkers and while it was still in the notched square die I brushed the edges using distress inks. I matted it onto spotty embossed card and attached it to the main card after which I added a bow to the horizontal ribbon. I coloured four card candi and added these to the corners of the card.
   Finally I matted a piece of the spotty card onto core'dinations cardstock, added a white peel off sentiment and fixed it to the card using foam pads.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   ABC - o is for open
   Creative Inspirations - anything goes
   Whoopsi Daisy - autumnal colours
   CD Sunday - shades of autumn
   Fab 'n' Funky - fall colours
