PTI October Blog Hop


Once again, I've decided to play along with the Papertrey Ink blog hop this month and once again, the challenge is an inspirational photo:



I was inspired by the pumpkins, so I decided to include some by stamping the pumpkins in my Fall Elegance stamp set. I also loved all the patterns, so I included some patterned paper on my card.


I used PTI cardstock (simply chartreuse, rustic white), stamps (fall elegance, think big favourites #7) & dies (picket fence-- these were sent to my from my PTI forum friend, Pattylt!). The patterned paper is SU! (text) & My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for looking!
