PTI's October 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

I was sad to miss September's challenge due to travel, so I'm happy to be back this month for PTI's October Blog Hop Challenge!  I loved so many things about the inspiration photo for that it was hard to choose what to focus on.  I ended up making several cards in the process!

Using this sketch recipe as an additional guide, I began with a base of woodgrain patterned paper.  I added an ivory panel with rounded edges and a strip of cranberry card stock down the side.  The main thing that stood out to me in the inspiration photo was the branch of rich golden leaves, so that's what I focused on.  Stamping an image from Turning a New Leaf several times, I used a mixture of PTI's Summer Sunrise and Stampin' Up's Crushed Curry.  I die cut the main sentiment from Inspired: Blessed from the patterned paper and triple stacked it for some dimension.
