Papernest Dolls Ellie with Scarecrow

Hello friends, we made it to the weekend.  Woohoo, I was ready for the weekend mid -week and we are finally here. Today I am sharing a z-fold box card using Papernest Dolls Ellie with Scarecrow.  She is too cute and a great addition for any fall projects.  I had so much fun creating this card to showcase Ellie with Scarecrow.

I colored both images using copics and used my brother scan and cut to cut out the images.  I decided to use doodle bug flea market paper collection for this card.  This paper collection just went perfect with this cutie.   I used various die cuts from jaded blossom to layer through-out the card.  I stamped the sentiment out and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I placed the sentiment in the wooden barrel with the other layered die cuts.

Skin: E13, 11, 00, 000
Hair: E37, 33, 31
