Paper Sweeties October Release Rewind!

Hi Friends!
It's Release Rewind for Paper Sweeties!  My previous creations are Christmas related, but today I'm rewinding a bit for fall is here.  I've already felt the chill in the air, especially early in the mornings when walking into work...brrr.  But, the leaves are turning and it is a gorgeous time of year!  Just a few fall photos to share...
The field(soy beans) behind out house...such a pretty view.
Scarecrow and pumpkins in front of our house.
And, this is a photo of our neighbor's bush that I don't even know
the name of, but it has such a pretty red color!
Ok, now to my card.  Today, I am combining a formerly released stamp set with the *new* coordinating die...Sweet Cuts-Stand Add-on: Scarecrow today.  The dies coordinate with all the stamped images except for the basket of apples, which is from the stamp set Stand Add-on Fall Harvest.  And, the sentiment is from Happy Fall Ya'll

I started with a tan colored base and paired it with Simple Stories, and Glitz papers.  I paper pieced and colored with scarecrow with copics.  Burlap ribbon, flowers, twine, and brads to finish off the card. 

I hope you enjoyed viewing the new awesome stamp/dies this month from Paper Sweeties!  Please stop by the following teammate's blogs to view some beautiful creations!   Have a wonderful day!
