Homespun Fall

A new week and a new challenge in The Shabby Tearoom and Debbie is our host this week and asks we create a crad or project inspired by the photo with a Fall/Autumn scene.

The prize for one lucky winner is 15 yards shabby seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy shop.

And here's what I created!

I love the colours in the inspiration photo, so I tried to match my papers up! I die cut the orante frame and printing a doily, layering with a K&Co canvas flower which I've added a cute die cut pumpkin cut from Coredinations. I've accented this with acorns, berry sprigs which I glittered, flowers, and die cut oak leaves shaded with a Pro Marker and ink.

I have used this yummy seam binding in Cake Crumbs, Ambrosia Cantalope and Winter White from Simple Treasures with a tag that I rubbed some white paint over to highlight finished with a sticker greeting.
