Papertrey October Blog Hop!

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  I hope you're enjoying a beautiful fall day today.  We're expecting temperatures in the upper 80's today!  Beautiful weather here :)

Today I'm playing along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for October.  It's been months since I played along and thanks to Mary Pat ;) I'm ready to go this month!  The inspiration picture this month was so pretty and I was inspired by the colors and the polka dots!






I made a 3x5 card, something I've never done before, out of New Leaf, and smudged on some cream colored acrylic paint.  Then came the polka dots.  The first layer is a strip of Bitty Dots Basics in Summer Sunrise and then on top of that is a nice wide piece of Orange Zest stamped with Polka Dot Basics II and embossed with some Orange Zing embossing powder!  I layered on a couple of bits of trim from my stash on top of that to tone down the orange.


To finish off the card I made a a simple flag by folding the largest die from the Double Ended Banner in half and adhering it around a quilting pin.  I stamped my sentiment from Autumn Abundance and added a little butterfly!

If you get a chance, you should check out the cards over at Nichole's blog.  Everyone is so nice and there is some major talent hanging out over there!

Have a fab Tuesday and I'll see you tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by today :)
