Paper Sweeties September Inspiration Challenge #23 - 'Pretty Pumpkins'

Good morning and welcome to another Monthly Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties! It's finally September and Autumn will be upon us soon,woot woot! I'm looking forward to some cooler weather and pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks! I hope the new challenge theme this month will set you in an early Autumn mood!
The colors are soft and sweet, but the pumpkins say, hurry Fall! Here's my take on the inspiration:

I used stamps from the Autumn Blessings and the Give Thanks stamp sets that were released last fall. I used a digital cut file for the pumpkin and covered it in  Rock Candy Distress Glitter to give it a frosty look. I've also used seam bindings in Mint and Raspberry that are available in the Paper Sweeties store. Links to all products used are at the bottom of this post.

Use the link list below to see what the challenge inspiration team has for you:

 To join in on the fun, all you have to do is  CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration graphic using any of your favorite crafty supplies — PLUS use at least one Paper Sweeties stamp, die, embellishment or complimentary digital image!  Use this month’s graphic as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — anything goes … most important — HAVE FUN and let our photo inspiration spark your creativity!
Our challenge will run 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.

 I would also like to add that I'm currently taking a survey of my readers to see what types of projects and content they would like to see on Kristi's Paper Creations. Leaving a suggestion in the comments earns you an entry for an awesome giveaway! Click here to go to that post. Thanks!♥
