Guest Designing Today At The Shabby Tea Room

Hello Friends,
I am so excited as today I am a guest designer at The Shabby Tea Room.
You can imagine how honored I felt when I was invited to do so
as the Design Team there is "fabulous"!!!
 

 
We were to use this photo as our inspiration piece....
and it was to have pumpkins, burlap and twine
I was a bit intimidated at first, as I knew it just had to be my very best....
So one night while in a "sleepless" state I came up with an idea to stamp a
"shabby chic" scarecrow, not realizing I only owned one scarecrow stamp....
but as it turns out I think it was perfect for what I had in mind....
The card just somewhat fell together for me...
 
 
I had ordered a wonderful Cheery Lynn Designs pumpkin die HERE....
thinking it was just "perfect" for my "idea"
my pumpkins were cut from DS paper...rather shabby, don't you think?
 
I also saw on another blog that DCWV had a burlap paper out.
It is real burlap that  is adhered to paper, so when you cut it, there isn't any fraying.
I found it in a Joann's Fabric store, and there is where my card was built from...
 
I hope you have enjoyed my post today...and YOU can join in the challenge this week
at "The Shabby Tea Room" using the inspiration photo from above....
