Happy Harvest

Hey everyone. I hope your week has started off to a great start.  I have a card that I made this morning for a few challenges.  I was really excited because I finally got the chance to use Simply Scarecrows Cricut Cart.  I've had it since it released, and had been so busy with Halloween, that when I finally got to it today I remembered how cute it was.  Anyways, here it is...

The background paper is from a new release by DCWV called Collage Musings Stack.
The leaf I cut out using Gypsy Wanderings.

The cute scarecrow, corn stalk, and crows are from Simply Scarecrows.

The "Happy Harvest" sentiment is from PKS-Faceless Fall Fun.
I heat embossed it using Versamark and Stampendous-Red Dragon embossing powder. 

Here is a picture so you can see how I used the leaf as a window to show the sentiment. 
Hope you all liked it!!
