Happy Fall Y'All

Good morning! We have a fun challenge for you at Catch the Bug...this week we challenge you to make a Fall themed card. Sounds good, right?! We have definitely transitioned into fall here in the Midwest. I see the leaves are starting to drop; no raking for me yet, though. Our hearty Maples like to hold onto their leaves...I will be raking when it is good and chilly! LOL

I like to find a sketch challenge for inspiration, but couldn't find one that went with the image I'd chosen, so I went with a simple layout. I've colored the image with pencils and added die cuts and enamel dots for embellishing. This one is "mail friendly"...nice and flat! I wanted to bring out the pretty teal in the patterned paper; what do you think of the teal scarecrow's hat and the enamel dots? Here's a close-up:

Image: Bugaboo "Happy Fall Trio" Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, SU! Pumpkin Pie CS, PTI Dark Chocolate CS, Lawn Fawn Patterned Paper
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Lil' Inker Designs Dies, The Eyelet Outlet Enamel Dots

Please head on over to Catch the Bug to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you; you are sure to be inspired!
