A Scarecrow

Hey Ya'll,

This week's Squigglefly Challenge (SFC3713) is Down on the Farm Themed Cards. I live on a small farm so I love farm themed items - especially cows, tractors, scarecrows and my sweet and handsome farmer husband!


The image I used is called Bring on the Crows by Marla Shega. I love the detail Marla has in her images and this one was a fun one to do. I layered the image on some burlap I distressed, a lasercut frame, and some pretty SEI paper. I thought this image would be good for a fall birthday card so I added a few fall colored candles, some fall berries, and some raffia. The little index card peeking out the left is a cake recipe (I am craving some birthday cake - I haven't had any since December...).

Hope you will join us in the Farm Themed Card challenge at Squigglefly.

Hugz!

  8. Love the burlap on this little number. It gives lots of wonderful texture. The scarecrow image is so cute. I never thought to use candles on a card-what a unique and delightful idea. I always forget the candles so I would be untying them to use on the cake...lol
