My Besties Spanish Challenge October Guest Designer

 HiHo, Blogging Lovelies! Hope all is well with you. 
I'm honored to be guest designing for the next three months over at My Besties Spanish Challenge!
For the October challenge which starts today, I have created this inspiration card using 2 adorable gnomes from Sherri Baldy's My Besties Shop, linked below in my supply list. 
I followed Splitcoaststampers Sketch SC667 for my design layout, resizing it to an A9 card in PSE.
SU and Springhill Digital card stocks
Doodlebug designer papers
Promarkers to color images
Crafters Companion/Gemini Torn Edge Oval Dies
Various QuicKutz Leaf dies
Chalk ink for edge distressing
Distresser tool
Sizzix sentiment stamps and dies
Versafine Clair ink
Clear embossing powder
Stamplorations flat sequins
Viva Decor Gold Pearl Pen paint dots
Inside of card: I created a sentiment in PSE and printed out.
Back of card: some Doodlebug stripes with a scrap leftover from the front, along with a stamped and circle-punched siggie that I stippled with Distress Inks.
A close-up to show the shine from the heat-embossed sentiment and the flat sequins. You can also see some of the ink-distressing around the oval mats and the edge-distressing on the purple mat.
And one last look. This card makes me happy to look at, probably because I love purple! 
And so does who I'm sending it to.
Thanks to My Besties Spanish Challenge for having me and thank you for dropping by today.
Have a great week ahead!

I was inspired by the Fall colors, the faces, hats and sunflowers
I used brown, purple, yellow, orange, green

I just read your comment on my blog about the Puritans, and yes, I do agree. They weren't exactly very nice, were they? I read a book about them years ago (can't remember the title) and The Times of their Lives by James and Patricia Deetz. I know it must have been hard to survive but they had no empathy for others, did they? Thanks for the comment and the other books you mentioned. I am going to add them to my reading list.
