Rudy's Happy Harvest

 It is time for crops to be harvested and that means my daily commute usually includes a tractor or two. Crops are coming off the fields and the farmers are working hard to feed their families and animals. One of the places I drive by has a garden at the front of a corn field and for awhile they had a homemade scarecrow "standing" at the edge of the garden. It made me smile to see the aluminum pie plates blowing in the breeze and inspired my card featuring "Lg. On Guard Rudy" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. He is going to be happy to rest after the crops are off the fields and the produce is out of the garden! 

After stamping Rudy on alcohol marker friendly paper, I coloured him with Copic markers and hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge to help him stand out on my background. I found a piece of blue paper in my stash for the sky and added that to a piece of  card stock and patterned paper from Echo Park. 
To create my scene, I die cut some grass, clouds and a fence and added them to the blue paper.  I used the cut off piece of patterned paper to add a few pieces to the side to help tie the card together. A stamped sentiment cut with a fish tail banner and some enamel dots finish off my card.
