Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge-October 2016!




                                                           




Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Paper Sweeties Monthly Challenge!   And, I'm excited to announce that a $20 gift certificate goes to the winner of this month's challenge!  Such a lovely inspiration photo with all the delicious chocolate cupcakes and pumpkins!  I hope you're inspired by the beautiful photo to join the challenge!

This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card made for Dies R Us Challenge!

For my card, I started with a tan base and paired it with Doodlebug paper.  I used the Bee Happy/Sweet-Cuts-Bee Happy stamp set for the leaves.  The cupcake was stamped and cut using the coordinating die from the set Sending Sweet Thoughts/Sweet Cuts-Sending Sweet Thoughts.  The tiny pumpkin sitting on top the cupcake is from the Planner Series:Fall Sentiments.  And, the large pumpkins were stamped and die cut using the Stand Add-on:Scarecrow/Sweet Cuts-Stand Add-on:Scarecrow.  The scalloped border was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  Seam binding ribbon (Frosting) to finish the card.

Please hop along and view more inspiration from my teammates...

Maria Patrick--that's me



Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care and have an awesome day!

Hugs,
Maria
