Papertrey Ink's September 2015 Blog Hop

Hello friends.  Well it's the 25th, and you know what that means in my world, right?  Yep, Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop!!  Beautiful Fall inspiration photo this month of a chalkboard and wreath with Fall leaves, and since I take things pretty literally, this is what I came up with:




Of course I HAD to use Heather's new Twig Wreath stamp set, along with Autumn Adornments for my sentiment, and the little wheat stamp from the Quilted: Autumn set.  Rather than using typical black for the chalkboard background of my card, I used a dark brown cardstock, and my flowers were all done with an old (maybe 15 years??) chalk set and then fussy cut.  A kraft card base and a little bit of twine finished off this card.

Here's the inspiration photo we had to work with this month:
