Challenge Trio - October Bliss

It's October! Yay!

It's hard not to love October - pumpkins, fall leaves, beautiful colors, crisp air, and Halloween! It will be here before we know it.

And this week I am on vacation in beautiful Destin - as if October could get any better - it "just went and done it" as we say in the South. (ok some of us do, when we get tired and don't pay attention to proper grammar...  it happens).

This card is the child of three different challenges. Sometimes I do it for the fun of it, sometimes it takes that much inspiration to get me going. This time - honestly, it was just plain fun.

Inspired By challenge had this really neat, natural looking photo:

Skipping Stones Design had this great sketch:  (I LOVE sketches of any kind these days)

And Color Throwdown had these fun colors:

Here is my card, a medley of all 3:

Supplies used:
(Cardbase) Recollections, Michaels; (brown cardstock) DCWV; (Desert Sand cardstock) CTMH;
 (patterned paper) My Mind's Eye; (background stamp Grunge set, sentiment Heartsong 2) Skipping Stones Design;
(Chocolate Twine, Corduroy Button, Harvest Charm, Chocolate Ink) CTMH.


Thanks for visiting today - hope you are having a great week.
