Happy Sunday, everyone! And happy October! Sandy has a gorgeous theme challenge for us today at the Paper Players:
I know how much she likes florals, so it was very fitting for her to choose this beautiful prompt! I had this idea floating around in my head for a while, so I thought I would finally work on it for her challenge. I've seen pumpkins used as "vases" on Pinterest, so I thought I would create one for a card:
I got a beautiful pumpkin stamp set last year from Close to My Heart and I thought it would be perfect for my autumn florals! I used images from Jar of Love and Beautiful Bouquet for the flowers and greenery, and a past Paper Pumpkin kit for the sentiment. It was mounted on layers of Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Pear Pizzazz:
I added a little earthy bow from linen thread to finish it off! It was a little time-consuming but very worth it! I hope you'll share your autumn florals with us this week too! Check out what the design team made as well:
One foggy morning last month, on the way to the bus, we discovered a huge spider web that went from the lower branches of our pine tree all the way to the ground! It's hard to see, but I took a few pictures. You can see Cassidy and Jackie on the opposite side of it as well as a side view! Then when I took my walk, I took a few more pictures of some other webs. I dislike spiders in my house, but they are interesting when they stay outside!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
