Paper Sweeties October 2015 Inspiration Challenge

Welcome to October! I love Autumn! The cooler weather, the leaves turning bright colors, and the joy of comfort foods like homemade soups and stews as well as my Mom's delicious pumpkin bread!

October 1st also means that it is time for the Paper Sweeties October Inspiration Challenge!

I love this month's warm neutral color palette.  I love the textures shown in the picture especially the straw or shredded paper beneath the pumpkin. 

I used the lovely new "Mason Jar" stamp set from our September release.  I die cut a heart shape from the mason jar to create a shaker filled with gold sequins from the Paper Sweeties store.  The tag is from the "Beautiful Little Wishes" sweet cuts dies.  The sentiment is one of many you can create from the stamps in the "Mason Jar" stamp set.

I now get to send you along to the rest of the design team:
