The Mixed Media Card Challenge #27 {Harvest Basket}

Welcome to a brand new challenge here at The Mixed Media Card Challenge! For our challenge this month, the theme is HARVEST BASKET, and optional element: FRUIT. Work with however you interpret the theme: feature a basket in your card, use colors reminiscent of autumn/fall, include things that you would put in your own basket, and so on. We hope you'll have a go at creating a mixed media card that follows the theme with or without fruit. The team can't wait to see what beauties you'll be linking up!

1. Create a mixed media CARD based on the theme, with or without the optional element.
2. Display the challenge graphic on your blog post and link back to this challenge post.
3. You may enter as many times as you want, as long as each entry is different.
