Hello friends. Amazing how fast the 25th comes around each month! But that's ok because it's seriously one of my most favorite days of the month...to play along with Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop Challenge! Take a look at this months beautiful inspiration photo:
I took my inspiration from the woodgrain background, the music, the orange and yellow leaves, the berries, and the pumpkins. I didn't have a walnut stamp, so I compromised and used a couple acorns...kind of a nut right?? Anyway, here's what I came up with:
I used a wood grained background stamp (SU!) with Weathered Wood distress ink for my background, and then started adding my different images. My music was stamped on a piece of cream colored cs and stamped with a Heidi Swapp background stamp, and then sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. I used the leaf die from Songbirds with Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, & Bright Buttercup inks, the berries from Spruce & Sprigs, the acorns from Autumn Adornments, the one red leaf from Leaf Prints, and my sentiment from Stylized Autumn (ALL PTI). My pumpkins were blended from Orange Zest, Ocean Tides, & Pine Feather inks and die cut with a Gina Marie Designs die. A few Rainstones and a twine bow finished up my card. Here's a closer up view:
Off to hop along and see how everyone else was inspired, and you can too right HERE.
And if you're not tired of looking at Autumn themed cards, stop back again tomorrow and see what Birgit, Patti and I have come up with for our monthly challenge...you won't be disappointed!! :0)
