whimsical wednesdays " fall colors "

happy wednesday :) hope your week has been a good one so far..if not sorry and remember its almost over :) this week at WW  were to make a card or project to celebrate fall. my absolute favorite time of year. were also to incorporate a handmade embellishment. be sure to go check out the awesome creations by the rest of the dt.
                                                         heres my card
i used my cricut and paper dolls cartridge for the pumpkin. added cloud9 rain dots for eyes and nose. 

for my hand made embelli i made faux corduroy buttons. my buddy rose  gave me this fantastic paper. i used a circle punch and hole punch. i need to find this paper in white or cream so i can create different colors :) whered ya get this buddy ..we need to shop !
isnt this scarecrow just the cutest.hes a sizzix die cut but i kinda messed up the embossed part of it and find it easy to just use as a stencil. he looks like a stamped image this way. i colored him in with some marvy markers.
                 the leaves are cuttlebug and the acorns.. ooh i handmade those too. just drew and
                                                     colored with colorbox fluid chalk. 

our awesome  sponsor this week is creative inspiration paints. our winner will get to choose 5 paints of their choice. how generous , thank you CIP.
