IB148 Count Your Blessings

Howdy, peeps!  Hope your week is going by nicely!  It's time for a lovely new Inspired By challenge!  I am constantly amazed at how Laurel and Danni keep coming up with these fabulous inspirations for us!  Check out this week's: 


And here's the optional sketch...you can use one or the other, or combine them!  


I sort of did use the sketch this week:


I really had a good time putting this card together!  So many fun elements, and I had a chance to pull out some old goodies as well as current!  I used some woodgrain paper to diecut a window and backed it with some retired printed vellum:


Then I stamped some pumpkins from my favorite Pick a Pumpkin set, and gave them a little garland of leaves from Beautiful Autumn upon which to rest:


And I finally used the Mug Mat die from the Greetery (that I just had to have) and a pretty little sentiment from an old My Creative Time set:



I think this is one of my favorite cards this season!  Be sure to stop by the IB blog to see the fabulous creations the rest of the DT made....and be sure to share yours with us too!  

Time to make the jack-o-lanterns...you'll have to come back to see the final results!




Yep, those seeds feel yucky!  LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I can see why this card is a favourite LeAnne - so many lovely, rustic elements. I'm quite tempted by that inspo photo this week - I might have to dig out some old supplies and have a go!
