Buttons, Burlap, Kraft, or Twine -- for Joy's Life. And a winner!

Happy Monday, crafty friends.  It's all about using texture for a Fall-like feel this week with the Joy's Life design team.  Since yesterday was the first full day of Fall, we're right on track with these projects!
I used Kraft and twine for my Fall-feeling project, plus some autumn-like papers and falling leaves:

The sentiment is from Joy's Life "It's All Fall" stamp set.

You can find this set, and all her wonderful stamps, here in her store.
I used a cutting file from The Cutting Café for the "F-A-L-L" and the outline. The fall leaves are a Tim Holtz die, painted with Creative Inspirations paint. The papers used for the lettering are 12x12 Acorn Hollow by Little Yellow bicycle, mounted on a Kraft cardstock base (Close To My Heart).  The tag shape is cut with a Spellbinders die, and the twine is from Close To My Heart.
I promised to pick the winner of my blog candy and announce it today with my Joy's Life post.  I used to help me with the selection.  I entered my total # of comments from the hop, and picked comment #11.  Chriss America Real! You are the winner!  Halloween stamps, Halloween rub-ons, ribbons, embellishments, it's all heading your way, as soon as I get your address.
We barely hit 50 degrees here in WI today, with a cold North wind.  Yes, Happy Fall, Y'all!!
