Apples, Pears and Pumpkins

I love fall colors, so when the Beary Scrappy Gals decided that we would work with a palette inspired by apples, pears and pumpkins - I knew it would be a winning combination! We are still working with the awesome sketch that Susan came up with (You have until Nov. 14th to play along).

My card is very fall inspired. First, I went through my stash of papers from the Beary Scrap, and decided on Queen Bee from Pink Paislee. I am always happy when I use this paper. I also added some Bo Bunny Peacock Lane. - For my image, I used this really cute little Edwin holding a chicken from Magnolia (I am so bad about remembering the names of some of these stamps - sorry!) and colored him with Copics. I made a shaker box as one of my card elements that has little autumn leaves and green beads in it (the beads help the leaves not to all stick together - and makes it more fun to shake). The fence and the tree were both cut with my Cricut using the Cindy Loo and Heritage cartridges. I would love to tell you that I am so uber talented with my Cricut and Gypsy that I planned to make the leaves of the tree the perfect size for the May Ribbon leaves that I added to it - but alas, I'm not that talented - I was just really lucky! And I really thought it was quite serendipitous that they matched up so well!

This really is a great sketch, so we would love to have you play along with us!
