PTI October Blog Hop



It's that time again! Time for the October PTI Blog hop!  Here is this month's inspiration picture...


And here is my card...

IMG_3803

I took the patterns, colors and textures from this photo.  To be honest, the first thing I saw was the fabric that looks sort of  looks like woodgrain.  Then all those polka dots and the colors sang to me!  :)  I had a leaf stamp from Michaels and then that super cute little autumn sentiment from one of PTI's Fillable Frames.  The pattern paper is PTI too, and I made my own polka dot paper using Polka Dots I and II. 

I can't wait to see everyone's take on this picture!  Stop back by Nichole's blog for the complete list of participants!  Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping!
