Once Upon A Monthly Challenge #4 - Fall is in the Air

Hello friends.  It's time once again for Elena and I to post our: Once Upon A Monthly Challenge card to each other.  Seems like anymore it's taking us 2 months to get cards posted (I'm the SLOW one) but we hope you are enjoying our challenges even if we are late posting them.  So without further ado here is the challenge this month.
Elena picked a Fall/Autumn theme for our challenge.   You won't want to miss seeing the card she sent me so be sure to pop by her blog to see her card for this challenge.  I absolutely love Fall next to Spring it is my favorite season so this theme was right up my alley.
I found an adorable stamp set, (Doodle Fall - Inkadinkado) and just knew I had to have this set.  Isn't that Scarecrow adorable.  I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils and used a cloud template to add some clouds and sponged in the grass. I paired my image up with my new Basic Grey-Pyrus paper.  It has some awesome patterns/colors.  I love this one because of the fun little trees.  I also used a darker piece for the scalloped portion of the card.  The ribbon is from (American Crafts).  I thought it went fairly decent with the colors of the designer paper.  The greeting is from (Hero Arts).
I even did the inside of the card - Sometimes that's fun to do and really adds to the over all theme of the card.
You've just got to stop by Elena's blog (The Redhaired Girl) and check out the absolutely AWESOME card that she sent me for this challenge.  It is just adorable.

Take care and if you feel inclined to try out our challenge leave us a link to your card in the comment section on our blogs.
