Paper Sweeties September Inspiration Challenge #24 - Happy Fall

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Hello again!  I'm super excited to be back guest designing with Debbie and her lovely Paper Sweeties crew for the month of October.  They're starting things off right with the beautiful, inspiration board challenge below.  I've used it to inspire a card for my sweet girl's upcoming birthday.  She loves the Sweeties so!  Enjoy!
I started this card by trimming the top of a piece of green, polka dot, patterned paper with a strip of yellow, heart, patterned paper; framing them with White cardstock; and anchoring them with white-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches respectively.  I then adhered them to the Kraft, cardstock, card face; stamped a chalkboard tag, in White ink, with the "Hey Punkin'!  Happy Birthday" sentiment; and adhered it, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.
It was then trimmed with a Cupcake seam binding ribbon bow, dressed up with a simple, orange, stripe, ribbon bow, as well as a bit of lace, lone pearl, and felt leaves, which were die cut out and stitched down their centers for added interest.
The apple basket and pumpkins, as well as Emma and the bottom half of her fall ensemble were all stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock; colored with pencils and mineral spirits; hand cut out; and adhered, some with foam tape, in their present positions.  Emma's wrap was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a yellow floral print and hand cut out.
Finally, I die-cut a "6" from Daffodil Delight cardstock, glittered it, and tucked it in behind the fall produce to complete the look.
Can't wait to see how y'all are inspired by Challenge #24!  Obviously, the palette played a role in my creation, but the fall scene spilled over onto it as well.
Link up by the end of the month for the chance to win a shopping spree in the Paper Sweeties Shoppe, as well as a Guest Designer invitation for the next challenge.  Also, please be sure to stop by these inspirational blogs to see what the Design Team has created just for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have an uber blessed October, friends!  Hugs!

Jinny your card could not be any more precious! What a sweet card for a fall birthday. You nailed it all perfectly.

Yes, I was watching the Royals game last night until I couldn't hang anymore. I was rooting them all the way. I was so happy when my DH told me they won their game! :-) The crowd was electric!
