MMSC19 - fall tractor

Feeling the days cool off a little and settling into the new school routine has finally made it feel like fall here . . . sometimes the change of season eludes us southerners (one small thing I miss about NY). Soooo I decided to use the autumn theme for my submission at this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. Our monthly/weekly sponsors are contributing some great stuff that you could win, so don't wait to check it out! If your addicted to stash -like me!- you'll want to click on their logos below and start shopping right away!

For my card this week, I used my Green Stack by DCWV - once again - love, love, love this paper! I colored my hand-stamped tractor image with colored pencils and sponged the background w/Martha Stewart inks. My tractor image is layered and made 3-dimensional with foam tape and the puffs of smoke have been cut out to achieve the "out of the box" effect (or in this case "out of the oval" - hee hee).

My cute pewter barn charm is by Karen Foster Design and I matched the brads by Making Memories. I adore these little leaf buttons and laced them with twine, which kinda represented the farmer's haybales for me. Lots of stitching inside & out in 3 different colors kept my sewing machine quite busy and I even stamped some teeny tiny chicks by Clear Dollar Stamps on the inside for a final touch! Aren't they adorable?

Check out what the rest of the design team came up with, then get to work creating your own masterpiece:
