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.
