Too Cute to be Scary

Hey all my crafty friends, I have a super cute fall card to share with all of you.. Well, since the leaves are starting to change colors and fall off the trees.. I am beginning to get fall fever, there is so many things I love about this time of year.. So, all the wonderful fall scenery and my new "Simply Autunm" paper pad by Recollections has totally inspired me to create this fall card.. For the layout of my card I used the sketch from Crafty Sprouts - newest challenge going on right now.. I posted the sketch below in case you wanted to check it out :0)

Here's what I used to create this little scarecrow cutie card :

*Gypsy ( used for welding)
*Simply Charmed( scarecrow girl)
* Disney- Princesses Happily Ever After (pumpkin)
*Paper Doll Dress Up (fence)
* Plantin SchoolBook (circle, oval & leaves {for the crows body})
* Cuttin' Up(asterisk)
* "Simply Autunm" paper pad by Recollections
*Card stock by the Paper Studio
*"Monster Kisses" stamp set( Crafty Sprouts)
*"Boy Mates Assort.." face stamps (Peachy Keen )
*White Pen
*Black & Brown Markers
*Small Leaf Punch
*Bakers Twine
*Brown Pearls
