This week I totally have fall on my mind. Maybe it's the days getting shorter, the slightly cooler weather or the fact that we are on the verge of a very Autmn Peachy Keen Stamps Mega Release

Or maybe it's because the stores are stocked up with new fall papers. Either way, I was totally motivated to create an autumn theme project

For some reason this is photographed really bright. Sorry it it hurts your eyes. I couldn't find a way to fix it

 I used Recollections Autumn Splendor Paper Pack that I also used in this layout and this card last fall. this is one of the best Autumn Paper packs that I have ever seen. Plus the price point is nice

I cut strips of paper at 3/4" x 6" and then mounted them on a piece of 4" x 5 1/2" computer paper using a scotch glue stick. I then trimmed off the excess. I adhered that onto a piece onto my Kraft Card base. I also sewed the card a bit using my sewing machine

I used PKS-05 Scarecrow Girl for my Image (stamped on a piece of 3x4 cardstock), and one of the included faces stamped using Black Ranger Archival Pigment ink and colored it in with my Prismacolor Pencils. I rounded the edges with my Corner Chomper

I inked the edges of my main image with  SU Pumpkin Spice and SU Crumb Cake ink  and mounted it on a piece of 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" white cardstock which I also rounded the edges with my corner chomper.

I took a 4 inch white paper Doily and folded it into 6 triangles (fold and score in half 3 times) then cut the triangles apart. I then adhered the triangles on the back of the white cardstock using a scotch glue stick to make a lace border. I then added the finished image to the front of my card using Pop dots

 I added a Raffia bow to the front main image using my hot glue gut. Some stickles on my scarecrow girl's cheek's and it's all finished.

Hope you like my project and it inspires you to join in the challenge.
