SUOC28 Celebrate Fall

Morning, All! Today's challenge at Stampin' Up Only Challenges is to create an autumn-themed project using gold, orange, and brown colors.

These colors remind me of our annual pumpkin picking playdate we do with our local moms' group, always on a warm, sunny fall day. Here's Little Missy and me a couple years ago.

And I love the pics of her jumping on this old mattress. Who doesn't want to roll in the hay?

I colored the wheat image from Always Thankful with More Mustard and browns. I then went back and highlighted with Peach Parfait and Pumpkin Pie to give the image a warmer glow. I thought I would add a string of pennants, such as what you might find at the roadside farm stand.

The antique brad is holding down my cheater bow.

This is such a pretty image. The pennants look so cute going across the card that way! Why was I only thinking of them on bright birthday cards? duh!
