Fall is in the air!

I am such a fall person. Give me a slight chill and colorful leaves any day. I have to say that HOT 90 degree days are not for me. I often tease my husband that I should be living in Alaska!
So, since today was a chilly, fall like day, I am inspired to create.
I used this adorable digi from DZ Doodles. This scarecrow can be obtained for FREE over at the Copic Buzz challenge. Nope, you don't have to use Copic markers to participate, any medium will do.
I sponged my background and attempted to use Copic markers on my scarecrow. I say attempted because I went back and shaded a little with my Prismas...I couldn't help myself! Once colored I popped his clothes up for dimension and added Crystal effects to his face. Since I cannot seem to create a card without a little sparkle, I added some Stickles to his patches...he is one stylin scarecrow! :)
Enjoy and be sure to leave me a comment! I love to read them all. If you enter over at Copic Buzz let me know so I can go and check out your work!
