Tilda's Town Challenge - Use Magnolia Background

I like using the background stamps and certainly don't do it often enough.  The challenge at Tilda's Town this week is a good reason to pull some of them out again.

Since it's fall and the leaves around my home are turning and falling, I used The Oak Tree and Fall Background stamps.  Then I added Tilda in Autumn Leaves.  Reminds me of when I was much, much younger and my children were young.  We all liked playing in the freshly raked piles of leaves.  Dad didn't like it very much, but we did!!

Doesn't Tilda look like she's having the time of her life!?  I used SU's Cajan Craze for the card base.  The designer paper was from SU's Well Worn dp.  The images were stamped on Cryogen White.
It was colored with Copics and sponged with SU's Bashful Blue and Garden Green.  The tiny bee was in a package of tiny sunflowers from my friend Lillian.

I stamped Tilda first, then masked her off and stamped the Oak Tree and the Fall Background twice.  It looks like it is raining leaves - just like at my house!

The inside of the card features Mini Fall Background stamped twice and Mini Scarecrow Tilda.  The sentiment is a regular size stamp that just happened to fit in the space I left for a sentiment. The shape was cut from my new Spellbinder's die Labels 26.

This image was colored with Copics and sponged the same as the front.

I am going to enter this card in the Tilda's Town Challenge #70 Use a Magnolia Background stamp.

Thank you for taking time to stop by and look at my fall card!  I love your visits.
