Challenge 15: Inspired by Autumn...


Y'all ready for a new challenge? A new season approaches and with it a new challenge totally inspired by it!

For this challenge we want you to be inspired by autumn (or fall to anyone across the pond who fancies joining in!) You may use autumnal colours as your point of inspiration, or leaves, or even an occasion such as Thanksgiving or Halloween! It doesn't matter so long as it's autumn inspired!
Autumn is my fave season of them all; I love the colours, the dancing multi-coloured leaves, the conkers (no-one's too old for a game of conkers right?), and the snug feeling of being indoors when the early, dark nights creep in...ah I could go on and on!

Anyways my card was totally inspired by autumnal colours:Recipe: Stamps - Fancy Flourishes/Damask Designs Card - Dark Chocolate/Kraft/Ripe Avocado/Summer Sunrise Bitty Dot Basics/Pure Poppy Bitty Box Basics Ink - Dark Chocolate/Pure Poppy Accessories - Rustic Jute Button Twine/Rustic Wood Button Other - Martha Stewart border punch/Cuttlebug/Cuttlebug Flower Dies

Autumn a la Kate:

Stamps - Vintage Picnic/Vintage Picnic Sentiments/Vintage Labels
Ink - Plum Pudding
Card - Stamper's Select White/Plum Pudding/Father Knows Best DP
Other - Plum Pudding ribbon and button/Copic Sketch Markers/brads/Labels One Dies/Tags Dies/Cuttlebug/Sewing Machine

So here are the deets: your creations must contain at least one PTI product to qualify. The challenge closes at 9am BST Monday 19th October. The winner will be drawn randomly and will be the lucky recipient of some PTI stash (sorry we can only ship within Europe! However, worldwide participation is very welcome and much appreciated to share the inspiration and our passion for PTI!)

REMEMBER: Have fun and just go with the flow - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
