Twirling Scarecrow

Hello! Today's FireCracker Designs by Pamela sale set for Wacky Wednesday is Tumbling Scarecrow. Hurry over and get yours for 50% off today only!

I decided to make him really tumble and twirl by making him a spinnner card. HERE's a tutorial for the spinner card. I was two lazy to walk upstairs and get two pennies so I just layered some punched circles to get the height and stiffness of a penny. It works pretty well. Of course, I had my heart set on placing the cutout just as you see here before I realized my word window punch wouldn't reach. So, I sketched the back of the piece with a pencil to mark where I wanted to cut and then made the cuts with my paper cutter.

The clouds are just roughly sponged with More Mustard onto Very Vanilla for a very fall look. The grass is sponged using a torn paper mask. The leaves and sentiments were then stamped into place. I happend to pay attention to the time and it took me 45 minutes to make this card. Here's another look:
