Pinspirational Harvest time

Autumn and Harvest time is now upon us. I imagine there'll be lots of Harvest Festivals planned in the UK in schools and churches.

Not here tho as Harvest time happens many times throughout the year. The fields of grain are usually harvested in the Spring or early Summer after the growing during the ideal Winter and then the sun comes out with avengence to ripen everything quickly. The grapes are ready in August and the olives after the first rain in the Autumn/Winter.

This week's picture at (pin)spirational challenges is a well laden Harvest basket. The colours of lots of. lovely fruit and veg may inspire you or the basket with a hint of blue behind of the lady's dress.

The sponsors this week are:

with a prize of 5 digis

Stamping Dragon
prize 4 digis

The card I've designed uses a digi from QKR Stampede.

This looks like one tired out 'farmer'. Check out some great digis from our sponsors this week.
The background was made using Wordle. A free online programme which creates 'word clouds' from text you've chosen. I found this many years ago by accident....as you do when you're playing on the PC. It's very easy to use and you to get choose colour and text  and then hit the button and as if by magic you've got a unique BP. 

I mounted the image on dark green card and used a light blue as the main card. The banner I made cutting  leaves freehand in Autumnal colours. I then added the dark green and red spotted ribbon across the top.

Have fun checking out the rest of my teamies pinspiring creations over at pinspirational challenges. Why not challenge yourself and join in the fun too. Good luck!!
