IBSIC #29 - Guest Designer! Eek!

Good morning & happy Thursday! I'm so thrilled & honoured to be a guest designer for this week's Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge . Look at the gorgeous photo we're inspired by this week:
Besides being inspired by the picture, make sure to use BROWNS, GREENS, and CREAM/WHITE as your main colours. 
I was inspired by the great clusters of flowers surrounding the teeny pumpkins, the fabric bow, and the lattice in the upper portion of the picture, and used LOTS of fibres in my card. Looky:
Supplies: patterned paper from Basic Grey "little black dress;"
brads from various BG collection;s
sentiment stamp from Stampendous;
Vintage Photo distress ink;
flowers from Prima;
standard small circle Nesties

The sentiment is stamped on canvas (found at a dollar store, score!);
the burlap leaves are cut freehand. The green leaves are two-layered - one layer is scrap cardstock,
and the other is a sheer, shiny fabric that I got in a collage ephemera pack from Michael's. 

Check out the design team's creations here, and I hope you can find some time to play along! The IBSIC challenge is a weekly challenge, with new challenges posted every Thursday. The deadline is Wednesday nights. The challenges vary - sketches, photo inspirations, etc - so give them a look :) 

Thanks so much for having me, Joanna! I love playing along as often as possible :)
