Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Here goes!  This is my first blog hop challenge...hope it turns out ok!


Paper: Teracotta Tile, Harvest Gold
Ribbon: Ripe Avocado
Ink: Teracotta Tile, Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Scarlet Jewel
Stamps: Leaf Prints, Places Please, Fillable Frames #7
Other: Tag Die

So this month is all about new techniques and skills learned from others.  Since I'm still new to stamping, it would be impossible for me to narrow down any specific technique.  I'm so inspired by every card I see and have learned everything about stamping from everyone on the PTI forum.  So, I figured what I should do is recognize the person who got me to buy that first stamp set. 

Nichole posted this card on her blog by Carol at Carol's Ink Spot:

I saw her cards using Dot Spot and I knew I had to do that.  She stampted a beautiful background of the Dot Spot onto vellum.  It was love at first sight:


Hope you like my Celebrate Autumn card!  And thanks, Carol, for inspiring me to start stamping!
