Fri. Sept. 9, 2011 CSST Inspiration Hop

Good Saturday morning!!!!

Wow- Summer is just about over, but I love our weather here this time of year! It's time for another inspiration hop from the Center Stage Spotlight Team.  Are you ready?
If you arrived from Joy's blog, you are in the right place.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, click HERE.
Carolina gave us this beautiful photo to inspire us. 

First- here is the inspiration photo:




I was inspired by the headboard and all those gorgeous colors. 


I stamped the pumpkin from the "Autumn Splendor" stamp set from Gina K. Designs, and colored it with Copics.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of acrylic, using black Stazon ink.  Inside the shaker are teeny little leaves, that I punched.  The ribbon is seam binding that I dyed with Distress re inkers.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card, and will now hop over to KAY'S blog, to see how the photo inspired her creation.  Thanks for visiting!
