Pick Three Challenge and Craftmad November Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting and leaving such lovely comments while I was away. My daughter and I had a wonderful but tiring weekend down in Townsville. We sat in sunshine, wind and rain. My daughter won her first three Touch Football games on the Saturday and lost the last one 2-0. The team came back Sunday morning bright and early 8.40am to play in the Quarter Finals which was 2-2 at full time so then they had to play extra time. In Touch Football this means a player drops off every minute until there are only three players left on the field....they start with six. So at every stage into extra time it's first to score. They did get down to the three players but the opposition ended up scoring the winning try. An exciting game to finish the weekend on.
Now for the card. I noticed that the Pick Three Challenge needs one more entry to put us in the running for prizes. Woohoo!! So couldn't resist the temptation to do another card with the challenge of using three elements from the above image. See Pick Three Challenge at Stamping Vacation. I have also used the November Card Sketch Challenge from over at Craftmad to help me create this card.
I have used SU More Mustard for the base card, strips of Su Ruby Red and SU Really Rust which I have run through the Cuttlebug using the Forest Branches embossing folder. Coloured this wonderful scarecrow image from Digital Delights. Finished with a strip of SU Old Olive and a white birthday sticker from 'The Sticker Store'.
The elements I have used from the image, colours, tree branches (embossing) and the scarecrow.
