Haystacks the Scarecrow - Pumpkin Card using Damask Decor

Hi Everyone - today for my DT post for Digital Delights at Louby Loo, I decided to make a Fall/Thanksgiving Card. I used"Haystacks the Scarecrow" and the "Pumpkin Set". I must say that I just love this scarecrow. He was so much fun to color.

I wanted to make a card that was near the shape of the pumpkins in the digi stamp from Digital Delights. I used to find a pumpkin on the Damask Decor cartridge.

In Design Studio, I merged two pumpkins together to form the cardbase. I also decided that I would decorate the inside of the card, so I put two smaller pumpkins on the mat to be cut at the same time. I put yellow cardstock on the top of the mat to be the card and then red cardstock on the bottom of the mat for the inside of the card. A picture of my file in Design Studio is below.

I colored Haystacks and the Pumpkin Set using Promarkers. I then cut each digi out. I adhered the pumpkin set to the front of the card and used pop dots on Haystacks to add more dimension to the card.

In Word, I merged the digital sentiment "Ever Thankful" from the Fall Sentiments set with the Pumpkin Set. I printed it on white cardstock and then used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch to cut it out. I then pop dotted it on the front of the card.

All in all, I think Mr. Haystacks turned out pretty cute!! He makes me think of Thanksgiving and my Mom's famous (within our family) dressing!! Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without my mom's dressing. Usually around the first of November, when I call my mom (several times a day), I'll ask at least once - "Do I smell dressing cooking?" For those of you that don't know, my mom is a VERY GOOD cook!!
