"If I Only Had a Brain" My Way

Recently Rae Harper, a fellow Stampin Pretty Pal, posted an adorable Scarecrow card on her blog-Wild West Paper Arts.  Check it out!  She used the Top Note die to create the face.  He was so cute!  I just had to give it a try for card club.  I made a few changes--we made ours into a box rather than a card.  I also used Crumb Cake ink and the Latice Texture folder to imitate burlap on the face. 
What do you think?

 I tried a few different types of eyes and not adding hair.  Which is your favorite?   
The Top Note die can be used to make bunnies, Santas, elves, Frankenstein, ghosts, goblins, etc.  The size is perfect for a scrapbook page, can be used on a card or added to the front of a box.  The possibilities are endless. 
Our Card Club Scarecrows lined up for a group picture.  Aren't they handsome!
