A Cute Pair

I've really been slacking on my fall/Thanksgiving cards...not just posting, but getting them done at all! I better finish up and get them mailed out this week. I know all my friends and family are waiting eagerly for their cards! I used the adorable Whipper Snapper set Harvest Blessings
designed by the very talented Anna Wight! I love her artwork! And I just adore this girl scarecrow from the flower in her hat to the lace trim on her dress!

I decided to go a with non-traditional colors for both. The first one I thought I'd go really girly and use pink. I wasn't really thrilled with the results at first, but it's growing on me. I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie dp on both cards, Nesties for the image and scallop frame, and both are colored with Copics. Her dress and pockets are paper pieced. The flowers are Primas, the bottom ones with copper brads and the top have copper Stickles in the center. The leaves and ferny thing are punches.

In addition to the Urban Prairie dp I also used turquoise Bazzill cs on this card. The flower is a large Prima folded in half with a circle punched out and also folded for the center. I added a little Stickles to that as well. Dew Drops and ribbon finish off this one.

Enjoy the day!
