Serendipity Autumn

Good morning! I am back again with a second post this morning to share my creation for today's Serendipity Stamps design team challenge. If you're looking for my new release post for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, please scroll down or click here.

This week we were challenged to create a fall/autumn card using the new fall/autumn stamps from Serendipity. We also needed to use this sketch:

I just fell in love with this stamp (Autumn, 1223H) - isn't that scarecrow the cutest?

I stamped the word first onto Rustic Cream cardstock. Then I pulled out some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket's Nutmeg collection. I chose a few that I liked and stamped individual letters that I later cut out and paper pieced. The rest of the image was colored with Copic markers and Spica glitter pens. I added a Dark Chocolate satin ribbon and some bits from a fall flower pick that I had in my stash. *sigh* Have I told you that fall is my favorite season? :)

Please be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see their take on the challenge!
