Happy Scarecrow Salutes Changing Seasons

     It's very early on a Tuesday and that means a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  Our theme this week is "For a Child" and our sponsor is Sweet n Sassy.  They generously provided images for the team to use and I chose to use "Happy Scarecrow."   He just looks like something a child put together and is a perfect image for a happy child's card.

This is based on the sketch at Sketch Saturday,
although I took the liberty of lowering the horizontal line
and angling things a bit differently.

     The image is colored with a combination of ProMarkers and Copics, then die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  The sentiment was printed and also die cut.  I used sheer ribbon to wrap the card and the tied a triple bow with that same sheer ribbon plus two others that were all in my stash.

     All the papers and card stock pieces were scraps left over from other fall themed cards I've been making this past week.  I always feel so good when I can use up scraps -- like it gives me permission to cut into a new, full sheet of something for the next project.  :-D  Because this is a boy card, the bow is the only embellishment.

Welcome back Connie! One of the best feelings about a card is when I can use up scraps! Good for you! I really like your choice of papers for this project - the acorn print in browns and the two vibrant yellow/oranges repeated in your ribbon. Nicely done! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our ATG challenge!
