It's All About The Balance

Morning all.
It's Rick St Dennis morning here in the Cubbyhole. Creative Corner Challenges are being sponsored for their current ANYTHING Goes challenge by Rick and the EDT were asked to guest as DT for them.

The card I made is using one of the super cute Scarecrows in the Hallowe'en section, available in Rick's Etsy Shop. The title of my post gives away his name - It's All About The Balance.

The little scarecrow was coloured with promarkers before cutting out and mounting onto dark green cardstock. The same card was used for the embossed sentiment and the mat. The sentiment reads "Be brave, step off the path, take a walk on the wild side" and is from a creative expressions set in my collection.
That BP - well that is made up of lots of 2" squares. I couldn't find a paper that I liked and wanted a kind of patchwork effect to match his trousers. Narrow DST applied to the joins then gold glamour dust rubbed on. I like the effect. Not too glittery - just enough.
I added some twine under his foot - as if he's walking a tightrope - it seemed fitting.

Some of the other girls in the EDT have made projects for the Creative Corner challenge and they can be seen all together over at the Sparkle and Glitter blog. It's always appreciated when some bloggy love is left and I'm sure the girls would love you to see their creations so, please do pop over.

I'd like to enter this card into the challenge at
