Inspired By...#45

I was really drawn to these milk containers and thought they would make such a great inspiration.

I love the retro feel, the text, the colors and the pennants on these... which way will you go?  

I had a lot of ideas when I first pinned the picture but in the end I went with the pennant with a single word.  I used my cricut to cut out the word and backed it with some Country Pumpkin Chower by Jillibean Soup.  I then used a bit of May Arts Woven burlap ribbon, which I stretched out, along with a stamp from Technique Tuesday, some Jute twine and of course the buttons are from PTI.  The main panel is mounted of foam squares for dimension.

I am playing along with the following challenges:
The Pink Elephant - Fall inspiration
Die Cuttin Divas: Fall colors (for me orange, brown and kraft)
CASology: Leaf

I can't wait to see what you come up with.
