Curtain Call: Gorgeous Gourds

It's time for some more inspiration at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and we have some Gorgeous Gourds!!

Aren't those blues fabulous?!!

Our sponsor for this week is Paper Sweeties.  The LEAD of Gorgeous Gourds challenge will receive a $20 Paper Sweeties gift certificate! 


They have a very cute line of stamped paper dolls but, with this inspiration graphic, I had to use some gourds and pumpkins. The gourds and the wheat are from from Stand Add-On sets that are actually meant to use to decorate a big farm stand stamp (you should see the cute scarecrow.)  Paper Sweeties also has gorgeous crinkled ribbon.

Gratitude

I hope to see you playing along this week.  There is lots of great design team inspiration over on the Curtain Call blog.  It's a gorgeous inspiration photo - it's definitely the time of year for some gourds and pumpkins and/or those beautiful colors (or anything else that inspires you!) The challenge stays open until October 25th with The Lead and Show Stoppers announced on October 31st.
  • Stamps: Paper Sweeties Beautiful (the frame and sentiment), Stand Add-On 2 (the blue gourd), Stand Add-On 3 (the wheat and tan pumpkin)
  • Paper: vintage cream
  • Ink: Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist, Memento Black, Copics
  • Accessories: Paper Sweeties Oatmeal Cream and Aqua Mist crinkled ribbon
