I made this Thanksgiving card using Scarecrow Girl from Karen's Doodles. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at The Sweet Stop. The twist to the challenge was to use deep red and mustard yellow. For the challenge at Wee Memories I also threw in a little orange and punched around my sentiment using a 2" scalloped circle punch. I embossed the red cardstock using a dot embossing folder (cuttlebug) and then added stitching using a red pen (marvy).
