Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge

Whimsical Wednesdays Challenge #24 "FALL COLORS"
Create a Card / Project to celebrate Fall.
Must include a handmade embellishment,

Hi my friendly bloggers!
I made this card with  "Sweetie Scarecrow" this is my favorite digi I have made so far.Anybody that knows me knows I just love sunflowers,so that is why this is my favorite digi.The cardstock is DCWV"Photoreal seasons stack" if you haven't seen this pack it is a must have, the colors are so vibrante and vivid.You can get it at Micheals.I was so happy I got to use the sunflower backround for this card.I added a little twine, some Bees and the sentiment is from Emma's.I also made my own sunflower embellishement.



I cut out a petal and created a flower with it then I made two more the same size a darker shade of yellow.Then I shaded them with different color pigment ink pads to give them depth,for the center I made a circle with brown cardstock and shaded it.
Hope you like my little creation this week!
