HI fellow crafters..
I'm here to share a cute fall themed card I created using cutting files from the PPPR store..

Here is what I created:
I just love this adorable mouse and wanted to make him look like a farmer :) He can be found in the Candy Cane mouse cutting file.

I used the hat from the Little Scarecrow cutting file and added it to my mouse, adding some fun colors to his clothing and holding a bunch of carrots that he just picked fresh for you ..LOL That bunch of carrots is in the Seed Packet cutting file.

I also wanted to add few autumn details, so I used the cute little pumpkin from the Pumpkin Spice Latte cutting file, Acorns from the Fall Borders cutting file and leaves from the Leafy Faces cutting file..

I decided to create a fun card using the stamps from the Hallo-scream and Fright Night stamp sets.. I actually love Halloween and its one of the holidays I miss a lot not living in the States.  But that doesn't stop me from creating cute Halloween stuff..

here is the card I created:
I started with a 5x7 piece of white cardstock, stamped my images starting with the row of skulls on the bottom and then masking them a few at a time to create the background, pumpkins first then the tombstones, franky and then finally the title, stars and bat.. 

I colored the skulls using a very light grey marker, just to give it a little detail and then coloring in the eyes with various colors of grey, added the cracking with a fine tip black marker..

The pumpkins, oh how I love pumpkins..LOL used some yellows and light tans to create the orange effect and adding little details with a white gel pen..   The tombstones I also colored with several different tones of grey, then adding little detail by adding little dots on them..

I stamped the title and then added some shadow around it with and same with the stars, decided my bat should be purple since it's one of my favorite colors :)
