October PTI Blog Hop!


Going to keep this short as I'm not feeling well today but I wanted to share the card I made last night for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  I was up pretty late so I took my photo today for better lighting.  Here is this month's inspiration photo.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as this photo was posted on release night.



The idea I had was to create panels of different patterns just like the pumpkins.  I immediately saw woodgrain and polka dots.   Then I looked at the white pumpkin and thought Embellishments!   (I love this stamp set)  And simply because I love those pumpkins in the photo, I created one of my own using my oval nesties.  I have been seeing a lot of pumpkins done like this lately.......Suzanne made a great card HERE with one of these pumpkins.



Thanks for stopping by and have fun on the PTI Blog Hop!!
