Well, here I am creating outside of my comfort zone again - and I'm starting to like it! This card took a lot of time and I really had fun with it. All cuts are done with SCAL with their Harvest Hill Farm set. I love the goodies in that set! Again I used "me & my BIG ideas" pack of Autumn paper for the background. It's a beautiful olive green that is raised flocking, like velvet. I didn't have any gingham paper so I searched on-line and downloaded some digi paper. Then I put the piece I used for his shirt through the CB to give it a bit more texture. I inked the edges of Mr. Scarecrow, sponged his face and shirt to give him a bit of an older look. Also used some raffia for his straw, real buttons from my stash and a couple stickers for embellishments. The leaves are ones that you scatter on tables for decoration. I've had them for years and used to use them as sprinkles inside of my cards. Now their ON the cards!
