Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Fall is my favorite time of year and the inspiration photo for this month's blog hop is right up my alley.  I found the colors and texture in the photo a beautiful jumping off point.



The washed wood background was such a perfect foil for the autumn colors that I tried to create that effect in my card.  I started with white card stock and ink blended some pale blue (PTI Spring Rain), Mustard  and  Orange (Stampabilities) across the card base.  I then got out my PTI Background Basics: Woodgrain Stamp Set and filled the entire background with woodgrain images stamped in grey.  I then cut a corner from the scalloped Note Card die from the PTI Make-it-Market: Don't Forget to Write kit and added it to the side of my card.  I then embellished the card with die cut shapes and a Bountiful sentiment all from the Make-it-Market: Color Pop Autumn kit.  Last I tucked a few sprigs from the PTI Fancy Foliage Details Die.

This is definitely one of my favourites from the hop, beautifully designed and stamped. P.S. Can't believe you did the woodgrain background using the PTI stamp - it's a little itty bitty thing in my opinion. I need to use a full card front sized background stamp. :)

Yay, for your blog hop win! Your card is beautiful and it's hard to believe that the background is not designer paper.
