Autumn Sunshine

Welcome to my blog! Today I have a card that I've created for Designed 2 Delight's Friday challenge.  I used to work in a flower shop and love to make flower arrangements!  The fall mums were always a hit! So here is my arrangement for you. I coloured the mums with different shades since it shows more of their layered look.  The pot I tried to make look like glazed pottery.  I love the sparkle of the gold ribbon so I added some sparkles to the center of the flowers and to the edge of the sentiment.  I also added a bit of ink to the distressed edges of the brown cardstock as a finishing touch. 

Stamps:  D2D's Autumn Mums digi and sentiment set
Ink: Ink It Up -chocolate brown
Papers:  Orange cardstock from Stampin'Up and Brown embossed from ATD
Accessories:  Ribbon from Modern@Home; Misc buttons; Glitter by DecoArt Twinkles Writer - Silver

Great touch on the pot - I like the way it 'shimmers' w/o being overpowering! Thanks for joining us this week at Designed 2 Delight!!
