Cosmo Cricket Fall Inspiration Challenge

Happy Thursday! I was very inspired by the picture I found on the Cosmo Cricket blog:

And for the chance to win the new, fabulous, amazing "Circa 1934" Collection (I so NEED it!!!) I created this card, using some "Earth Love" and "The Boyfriend" paper:

Inspired by the cream little pumpkin on the photo, I stamped one into one of the clouds from the "Remember" paper, then cut it out. Here is a close-up of my stitching:

And here is the burlap accent (inspired by the burlap lying on the bench) with the leaves and the wire curl that was inspired by the wire Welcome on the photo:

Did you know that you can punch cork??? It works:

I really had fun creating this! A last tribute to fall before winter takes over! Go check out the amazing creations the Cosmo Cricket Design Team made inspired by the photo - I especially love the unfinished wreath and the fab layout from Wendy Sue!
