Autumn Tent Card (September Card Class, Card #4)

And so ends a crisp, cool Autumn weekend...  With Card #4 for this Wednesday's Card Class!  The cooler temperatures of this weekend certainly inspired this fun scarecrow card...  I was also trying to come up with something that I thought my mom would enjoy. :)  His sweet face reminded me of the doodled faces my mom would paint or draw when I was little...  I can remember watching her toll paint those 'straw dolls' (does anyone else remember those?)...  When she was finished painting, I really did think those dolls would come alive and play at night (maybe I read "The Velveteen Rabbit" a time or two too many!).

This card was also created for Challenge #17 - Autumn over at Paper Playtime.  I love that Janis leaves her challenges open for interpretation (which I translate as 'Be Creative!') because it allows me to play with any ideas I have!!

My tent card measures 4x6 when closed (I started with a 4x12 strip of Spiced Cider paper and cut out the frame from one side).  The scarecrow was cut at 4.5" and is from the Cheerful Seasons Cricut Cartridge.  I used my Gypsy to stretch the grass from Gypsy Wanderings so that it would look more like a field behind that fun-faced scarecrow.  A little torn paper was added for the sky as well as some distressing and marker drawings for a little extra character.

If you would like to see the other cards I have posted for this month's card class so far, please:
Cards 5 through 8 will be added shortly, so please be sure to check back and see those as well (or sign up for email updates and to follow!)!!  I am pleased to offer a Card Class each month -- Participants make eight cards perfect for sharing or using for inspiration.  Our next class is THIS Wednesday, September 29th.

I love to read your comments, so please let me know what you think of my scarecrow card!!  Thanks for stopping by, and...  Happy Fall!!
