What a Beautiful Autumn Day..

Hi everyone,

 

It has been a beautiful day today and we have been at the Easter Show.  It was glorious Autumn  weather, we checked out all the animals at the show, wood chopping and Charlize’s best part.. the Show Bags ! 

 

Now on to the card that I want to share a card with you.  The colours are from the colour challenge at  Come and Get It Color Challenge – Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze and Perfect Plum.

 

The sketch layout is from Mojo Monday Blog and it looked really simple but my goodness I changed my mind on how use the colours with the sketch and the stamp sets I was going to use many times.

 

I finally decided on Perfect Plum for the base of the card and added some the Pear Pizzazz 1/2” (1.3 cm) Stitched-Poly Ribbon.

 

The stamped flower is from the Array of Sunshine (Hostess set) and for the first layer I stamped it in Baja Breeze and rocked the stamp around on the edge of the Perfect Plum inkpad.  I then stamped out two more flowers in Baja Breeze and Perfect Plum, cut them out and layered it all together with some dimensionals.

 

The Perfect Plum layer has been embossed with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder and at the last minute I added a bright shiny Rhinestone, of course :)

 

The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and has been stamped in Perfect Plum.

 

Here is my card….

I am really like the flower and even though it takes a little time to cut out the layers, I believe the end result is worth it.
