Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #38

It's time for another inspiration challenge and in honor of fall, we have a great blog post from Hostess with the Mostess. There are lots of great fall-themed photos so choose your favorite as your inspiration and come create with us! I just loved the cake shown here so that's what I picked.

I started out by making the embossed panel with the Vintage Wallpaper folder and Chocolate Chip card stock. The other colors I chose were So Saffron, Wild Wasabi and Tangerine Tango, which I used to watercolor the image from the retired hostess set Infinite Goodness. First I laid down a background of a saffron wash, then watercolored on top of that with the other colors. The wasabi panel features the retired Watercolor Vine wheel, and for the ribbon I really wanted tangerine, so I colored taffeta ribbon with a tangerine marker then layered it onto 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and topped it off with a button. The sentiment comes from the hostess set Afterthoughts.

Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this challenge!
