Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

I'm joining in today with the Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop.
This is the photo they have to inspire our creations this month.
I was inspired by the colors, the wood textures and the round pumpkins - but used the Text and Texture: Wood Slices stamp instead of pumpkins!  I used Canyon Clay and Cocoa Bean inks on the two part stamp.  I die cut the panel using my fav die lately - Pierced Feature Frames - using foam dots on the outside frame so the inside is depressed.   I added a panel cut out of Canyon Clay paper using the smallest Pierced Feature Frames, inspired by the black board sign in the photo.   The stem stamps are from the Wood Slices stamp, and the FOR YOU is from Text and Texture Leaves.   The die cut Thankful is from an older die set Counting My Blessings. and is adhered to the popped up edges of the frame with a foam dot right about at the letter N to keep the center popped up!   I added orange tiny twinkles to the center of 4 of the logs.
You have until midnight to link up your card for the hop -  I'm off now to see all the fall inspiration everyone has created!  You'll find the hop at the Papertrey Ink Blog.

The rustic wood slice background is so warm and welcoming, and that inset frame panel works beautifully to arrest the eye.
