Give Thanks

Welcome to another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a gorgeous inspiration photo for you:
Don't you love all those fall leaves?  And the reflection is fabulous!  Here is my take on the challenge:
As I am a relatively new member of the team, I don't have any tree stamps from Repeat Impressions, yet.  So, I had to go with the Fall theme of the photo.  Plus, I just received this awesome pumpkin stamp in the mail this week and "had" to use it. : )  But, I did use the colors from the photo and leaves, and that's what inspiration photos are all about.  Create however they inspire YOU.  Make sure you hop on over to The House blog to see how the rest of the DT was inspired.
  My ribbon was salvaged from a treat packaging I received a couple years ago and the button came from a pair of pants.  Gotta love recycling.  Oh, and the rhinestones were left overs from some mosaic fairies that my daughters have.  Hand-me-ups to Mom!

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "514W Prize Pumpkin", "3306W Falling Leaves" and "2826W Let Us . . ."
Dies: MFT "Blueprints #13"

Challenges:
Craftin' Desert Divas--inspiration photo (I was inspired by the colors)
