Scaring Up Some Crows and a Mystery!

Happy hump day! I've got something really fun to share with ya'll. Heather has come up with another fabulous challenge! It all takes place at Squigglefy's group on Papercraft planet. She drew up a great sketch but there's a fun twist to the challenge! She has a list of twenty different things you could add or use on a card. It could be anything from a color you used to using ribbon or a brad. No one knows what's on the list except for Heather. When you post your project she will compare it to her list and you get a point for each item on her list that you did! In the end, the person with the most points wins!

Feel free to rotate and flip the sketch any way you want, but at least one Squigglefly image should be used to be eligible for the prize.

so, what's the prize? Well, do you remember that set of nestabilities I offered up for the bucket list challenge? No one entered that challenge so the nestabilities are the beginning of the prize, but there's more! For every three entries in the challenge something new will be added to the prize package! It could end up being quite a prize - so tell your friends all about it and let's see how big we can make this prize package!

Now here's the card I made as a sample following Heather's sketch.

(click to enlarge)

I used this fun loving Bring On The Crows image drawn by Marla Shega and paired it up with some fall paper by Debbie Mumm.

The scarecrow is colored with Copic markers and cut out and embossed with a square nestabilities die. I used a window punch from Stampin' Up! to punch out the sentiment which is from a Unity stamps set. I tied some raffia in a bow and stuck it to the card with a little acorn brad by Recollections. I thought the raffia mimicked the straw in the scarecrow.

Now go shout about this challenge so we can get some entries! I've got lots of fun stuff ready to add to the prize!

I have a wonderful card share for you today! This is one from Mel McCarthy and you all know that everything that girl does rocks! Take a look HERE. Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
