Down on the (Pumpkin) Farm

This city girl is no stranger to urban settings, airplanes flying constantly overhead and stop and go traffic.  But when Squigglefly announced this week's challenge, I was kerflummoxed!  The only farm I have ever been on or seen is the pumpkin farm I took my kids to just before Halloween.  And how could I make a card with a Down on the Farm theme if I didn't have farm papers, stickers nor an image to play with?!
THEN I checked out the design team cards on the challenge blog, and besides oohing and ahhing at the beautiful cards there, I also found some inspiration, too!

So move over, my country bumpkins, I made a card with frost upon my pumpkins.  Yes, I am quoting a country song.  I used to date a guy who always took me to a bar that played country songs and offered the biggest fattest dill pickles in a big old jar that I have ever seen--right smack on the bartop!

Anyway, I digress!  I printed this Squigglefly digi image and colored it with Copics.  It's called "Stanley Scarecrow" by artist Fawn Palmer.  I used a leftover piece of patterned paper that shows the clouds and sun.  I tore green cardstock and layered it to look like fields, and adhered my scarecrow with dimensional tape.  I added a bow of raffia to my card-it kind of looks like straw, right? LOL

Your turn to step up to the challenge.  Enter a card or project with your version of a down-on-the-farm theme for your chance to win a free digi!  Don't forget to use a Squigglefly image.  Click HERE for a freebie!

Pat your fields and sky made from different designer papers is a wonderful idea - I love how it turned out! Your sentiment is a fun one and the raffia is perfect with the scarecrow!

Your commentary is just too funny Pat! What a fabulous scene you created with your dp and of course scarecrows are on a farm!! The raffia is a perfect touch!
