Fall Inspiration

For this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are hosting an inspiration challenge.  The inspiration is a gorgeous fall scenery photo filled with fabulous autumn hues.  I am drawn to all the colors, mostly the saturation levels, in the Orchard Harvest DSP pack.  And, that is where the inspiration photo took me--to a perfect palette of warm and inviting color.

I included the Chevron TIEF to mimic the diagonal layout of the gingham and to lend to a crisp and crunchy feel as if stepping on a dried fallen leaf.  The "hello" greeting comes from the Friendship Preserves stamp set and was cut with the smallest Window Frame Framelit.  Don't you think it layers perfectly on the Petal Card Double Punch?  What is fun about the layered tag is that it is secured to the card with Linen Thread and is free to swing from side to side.

Be sure to check out how this photo has inspired the Hand Stamped Sentiments Design Team.  You too can make something using the picture as a motivator for a great fall creation--then share it for all of us to see!
