FSS Pumpkins and Sunflowers


This morning I'm sharing with you a Newly released Digi Image from Fred She Said. It's called Pumpkins and Sunflowers. I really love this image. I printed certain portions of it five times. There are four layers of pumpkins and the fifth is the sunflower above the Hello. The Hello is from a set called Fancy Phrases from Waltzing Mouse.

The inspiration for this card came from a sketch at Our Creative Corner. Unfortunately, this is their last sketch of the year. They have some great sketches and they will be missed.

The Papers for this card are from a new paper pack from Close to my Heart called Olivia. I just LOVE these fall papers. The tiny button brads and the ribbon are form the Sunset Mini Medleys, also from CTMH.

Now for the fun element. If you click on the picture of the card to enlarge it, you will be able to see the faux flower soft that I made for the centers of the sunflowers. I used the Chocolate CTMH reinker and sone styrophome shavings to make this.

I used a matching Embroidery Floss for the Hand Stitching.

Other Challenge Blogs I made this card for:
Delightful Challenges - Fall colors and Ribbon
Stamp Insanity - Elements in 3's
Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge - Fall Colors
All Sorts - Colors of Autumn
A spoonful of Sugar - Autumn
Creative Card Crew - Autumn
