Scarecrow Tin Pin Face

Hi friends,
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, this weekend my crafty friend & I went to the Stamp in the Hand Show. It's geared for card makers so several stamp companies showcase their stamps & products. Darcie's was of these companies that was new to me & they had some really sweet stamps. They had several stamp sets that coordinated with their "tin pins" embellishments. Well, 'nuf blabber... see if you can find it on my card:
Ok, disclaimer: I should temporarily take down my Copic Certified button cuz I am waaaay rusty! Ack! I haven't colored in over 4 months & it shows :(  Aside from that, isn't this little scarecrow guy the cutest :) Did you find the tin pin???

No? How 'bout now...
 Ahhh ya got it! It's the little button on his face! The little buttons are already colored in, so if coloring faces makes ya crazy, these may be your slice of cake! You simply color everything but the face & plop these little pins on top. I also used the Sunflower Die-namics from MFT on each corner.

Here's a peek at the simple innies:
 The vine is a scrap piece from another project that found a home here :)

I used this sketch from SSD made by my blog pal, and card maker extraordinaire, Kathy:
Great sketch, Kathy :)
