Welcome Fall

After reading several threads on SCS in regards to card sizes, I have come to realize that although here in North America we generally make smaller, A2 (5.5 x 4.25") cards, many people in Europe make much larger ones. So today's card is 5.5 x 8.5" in size; thats 1 sheet of cardstock folded in half.

The card started with just the cute punch art scarecrow I had amde.  I created the background by embossing the blue with clouds and sponging lightly with white ink. Then I added the ground (2 strips of torn brown cardstock) and the pumpkins.
That was supposed to be it, but I wasn't happy with the design. So I proceeded to add more elements. It took a few vines, the sun, bare tree and finally a little crooked, white picket fence for me to finally consider this card to be complete.
The pumpkins were created using 3 large ovals (SU) in rusty orange and the stem is the word window trimmed slightly on an angle at the top. The sun is a 1 3/8" circle (SU) and the fence was made using the word window punch (SU).
