Paper Sweeties October Inspiration

Morning friends! Today is the first of October and the Paper Sweeties have set out to get everyone's mojo flowing... this month we're changing things up a bit and moving from a sketch to an inspiration photo. I've seen this darling photo before on Pinterest and I can say...it definitely inspired me to break out some Fall-themed papers and set out to create something....and here's that something:

The ruler was cut out from the same stack of paper. I added a crinkled seam binding bow in coordinating colors from the patterned paper and the tiniest little twine bow.  The velvet flower and button leaves were added for a little pizzazz.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:
1. Create a card or project based on the current Sweeties' Inspiration graphic using any of your favorite crafty goodies! You’ll get an extra vote if you use ANYTHING from the Paper Sweeties Shop!!  HAVE FUN and let our colors spark your creativity!
2. Post a DIRECT LINK to your project in our Inlinkz gallery — please use the URL to your actual project post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation. You do not need to have a blog to enter — you can use any online gallery such as Flickr, PinterestFacebook or Splitcoast Stampers(keyword papersweeties)!  You can pin your Paper Sweeties creations directly to our Friends of Paper Sweeties Pinterest Board to contribute!
3. LINK back to the Paper Sweeties' blog post so your readers can easily find it!
The color inspiration challenge runs for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish — the more times you play, the more chances you have to win! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The new challenge will be revealed on the 1st of each month. The winner of the previous month’s  challenge will be announced on the 1st of each new month, will win a $20 gift certificate to the shoppe and will be invited to Guest Design with the Sweeties next month!
