Feel of Fall Challenge from Flourishes

Happy Labor Day!!! It is September and it is time for the Fall!!! I love this time of the year. It is my all time favorite, as here in Alabama the weather during this time is just beautiful. The smells in the air, the colors of the leaves, just everything about this time of year makes me smile.


This card I made with the Feel of Fall Challenge from Flourishes in mind. I used SU's Creamy Caramel CS and on top of that Classic Paper Designs from Crafty Secrets, which I bought from Joan's Garden. I then used a MS punch and SU's Really Rust. On top of that I used some leaf paper that I bought from Hobby Lobby (very Autumny). I used my Nestabilities Rectangle Die and stamped the flower from Flourishes Thank You Set. I colored with my Copic Markers and then had the idea that I would love some shimmer around the flower. I used my VersaMark stamp pad and some Eclipse Masking Tape, which I got from Flourishes. I mased the flower and then just put my stamp pad on top of the image. I put some Ranger Antique Gold Embossing Powder on that and tapped off the excess. I heat embossed the powder and it really looks great IRL. The ribbon and bow came from Autumn Harvest at Hobby Lobby and I found some glittered leaf brads there also and put one on the middle of the bow. I stamped Thank You from Flourishes at the bottom right.


Please click on the picture so you can see the shimmer and the small rhinestone below the Thank You. LOL...I put that rhinestone there because my Momento Tuxedo Black kinda left a dot where I did not want it.

If you want to see more from this challenge...I am posting on SCS with FLLCSEPT. Just go to the Flourishes Newsletter and you can see some beautiful images using this same design.

I wish you all the best of the week ahead and thanks again for stopping by!
