September "Photo Inspiration" Challenge!

It's that time again, crafters!!! Yes, September is already here (can you believe it?!) and that means there's a new challenge at V's Sweet Challenge blog!!!  Woohoo!!  This time it's an inspiration photo.  See it below...


I don't know about you, but this is one of my favorite color combinations--it's very shabby chic! (:  Now, this one was a challenge for me, in all its entity.  I LOVE the shabby chic style, but I also find it's one of the hardest styles to create!  However, I actually liked the way my "shabby chic" card turned out, being that this was my first attempt at creating in this style.  Oh my, can I tell you?!  I think it's safe to say the easiest way to give something a shabby chic look is to add pins and paper roses to it!  Or at least that's my theory... HA! (:  Want to get all the fabulous products I've used on this card (i.e. Pink ribbon which I colored using my "worn lipstick" distress ink, twine in "Caribbean", Maya Road paper roses, Maya Road heart pins)?  Head over to V's Sweet Ideas to shop your little heart out!!! :D  Since September is the month that announces the Fall, I thought this adorable lil scarecrow would be appropriate for the challenge this month! (:   He is a digi image from Robyn's Fetish--our sponsor this month!  Robyn's Fetish will be awarding the lucky winner of this month's challenge their choice of 5 digital stamps.  A BIG thank you to our friends over at Robyn's Fetish for their generosity!! (:


Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of  I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib.   Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.


And now, let's take a look at my card:

Hope you guys are inspired to play along with us in this challenge.  I get SUPER excited whenever I get to visit each of your blogs and see all the lovely projects you create--I can't wait!!! :D  So, don't forget to hop on over to V's Sweet Challenge so that you may link your projects AND so that you're able to check out the fabulous projects that the rest of the Design Team members have created for you--they are guaranteed to spark your creativity!!! (;
