Sweet Scarecrow


Well this scarecrow isn't very scary, but instead turned out so super sweet. This is a great paper piecing from My Scrap Chick. You can find it in their Fall Treat Boxes kit. The cardstock is Papertrey Ink and American Craft. The DP is from my stash (sorry can't remember the manufacturer). I wrapped some twine around it and finished it off with a bow. I inked my edges with Memento and Color Box inks. I can see making several more of these. One of my favorites!

I will be entering this into the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts Friday Challenges: #194 - Add a Bow
Card Crafter's Circle: #102 - Thankful/Thank You
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog: #154 Anything Goes
