A Color Challenge at The Kraft Journal

I'm really not a big fan of "all things spooky", but I do enjoy being inspired by inspiration photos.  So, for this week's Color Challenge at The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog, I took inspiration from the warm Autumn color palette in the inspiration photo.  I created my card using a Small Lunch Bag Kraft Notecard.
To that, I attached some fun October Afternoon patterned papers, an October Afternoon journaling card (jack-o-lantern), some vintage rick rack, October Afternoon mini word stickers, a few lengths and bows of Natural Hemp Cord and some machine stitching.
I held my bow together with a sweet Tiny Wooden Clothespin that I covered with a bit of Black With White Polka Dot Washi Tape.  I also stuck in a rusty Tim Holtz Memo Pin.  Some machine stitching and inking finish off my card.  I really hope that you will be inspired by this color palette, and that you'll stop by to play along with us for your chance to win the $15 monthly prize of a gift certificate to the Kraft Outlet.

I'm linking my card to the following:
