"Shabby Autumn"

Hi Friends!

I am just so excited and honored to be the guest de-
signer this month over at The Shabby Tea Room!  It
is definitely my favorite place to visit!  Such shabby
goodness to be found there with awesome inspiration
each week! 

For the challenge this week we were to follow the
colors of the inspiration photo as seen below, include
a pumpkin, and make it fun!

I knew I wanted to use a fall scene and got to work
with using the sweet little lady, Emma, from
Paper Sweeties!  I paper pieced her and added little
glittery brads for her hair and dress.  Stickles were
added to the tiny leaves.  Layered leaves are from
K&Company.  Fab pumpkins from MFT.  Gems
and yummy ribbon from Paper Sweeties to finish
off the card! 
So, stop on over at the Shabby Tea Room to see
all the awesome inspiration from the design team
and play along!  We can't wait to see what lovely
creations you create!  Thanks so much for dropping
by today, hugs!
