Autumn scarecrow

Well, here it is October and it's time for a new challenge from The Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This month it is: Frightfully Fun
Our sponsors are:

I chose to work with this adorable Bugaboo image:
 Isn't it super cute!!??  It has all the perfect fall elements.  It was a lot of coloring, but it was fun.  Since it is a pretty CAS card, I added some fun details: stickles on the sunflower centers and glossy accents on the apples and the owl's eyes.  You can see all the sparkle and shine in the photo below.
 Now, I don't celebrate Halloween, but wanted to give inspiration that went along with our theme this month.  So, I'm showing that this card works perfectly for both a (non-scary) Halloween card, or a "happy fall" card.  So I stamped a second sentiment and switched them out for this last picture.
The entire sentiment reads "Happy Fall, thinking of you this autumn and always".  Isn't it fabulous!  Please keep in mind, though, that our challenge is "Frightfully fun" so it really does need to be Halloween themed.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.
