Fall Flowers

Good Morning!

I hope you are all having a beautiful weekend.  We are enjoying glorious weather here in St Louis; much needed after days and days of rain.
Today's card uses a beautiful color palette from Color Throwdown and a nifty sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I used my Flowers in Bloom image with its new matching die~

This has always been one of my most favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, but I have never done it as a fall card before.  Being able to cut it out is now a snap with the new die.

Here is the fab sketch~

And the gorgeous color palette~

I colored the floral image with Prismacolor Pencils and then die cut it out.  I used some of my coveted Blush Blossom cs (yes, I still have quite a bit left!) for the image mat, along with some white cs.  I added a Scallop Border edge in Cherry Cobbler to dress it up a bit.  A white bow, faux wood button and some linen thread finish off the image panel.
The background dp was perfect for this color palette and is from Pink Paislee. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous and blessed weekend!

Lee Ann  :)
