there was so much fabulous inspiration from papertrey ink's September release, it was difficult to contain my creativity to just ONE snippet of inspiration . . . I actually combined two things I really loved . . .

Papertrey Ink's
"Create Along With Us"
first, I loved the striking red and white ribbon with a simple sprig of cedar . . .
and then I fell in love with Lizzie's deep red tone-on-tone buffalo plaid . . .
Joy & Peace Wreath Card
so, here is my combo of the two . . .
(a brand new versamark pad really made the pinecones pop - I love the finished project)
