Lawn Fawn Many Thanks

Welcome by today!  Thanks for taking a moment to stop by and say hello.  Today, I'm sharing a card I created using the only Lawn Fawn stamp set I own, Happy Harvest.  I used some American Crafts patterned paper (wood grain) and October Afternoon (green and orange), some Burlap String (orange and gold), some seam binding, October Afternoon journalling stickers, my Copics, and lots of Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
This card is definitely outside my comfort zone, but I do enjoy pushing myself to try new and different styles, techniques, and products that I wouldn't normally try.  I'm grateful for the crafting community that inspires me on a daily basis.  I've learned that all art is beautiful, and I've really come to appreciate so many different styles of art.  I feel blessed to be able to play along in these challenges:
Lawn Fawnatics Challenge - Challenge #14 - Happy Little Critters - Sad but true, the one and ONLY Lawn Fawn stamp set I own is this one that I used (Happy Harvest), and the only "little critters" in this set are the birds; so I added four of them!

CropStop Challenge Blog - September Link Up #32 - Anything Goes - I used several colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Tombow Adhesive, and two colors of Burlap String.

Just Keep On Creating - October Link-Up Party - Anything Goes

Crafty Hazelnuts October Patterned Paper Challenge - I used a few patterned papers on this card.  They're all listed above.

Simon Says Stamp - World Card-Making Day Celebration - Anything Goes

Double D Challenges - Fright Night - Mine isn't all that scary (not at all), but I was inspired by the colors.

Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Color Me FALL - I had a lot of fun with the theme and color pallette.

Have a happy day!
