Autumn Flowers


MFTWSC139  

Here's my card for the MFT Sketch Challenge. I must be thinking Fall as I ended up with the beautiful rich colors of the season done with Distress Inks pads & markers.  The card front & the flowers are spritzed with Shimmer Spritz Gold which gives a beautiful sheen in person. I'm thinking this will work for a Thanksgiving card. The scallop border is Spellbinders & the MFT products are Vertical Greetings die & Peaceful Wildflowers stamps & dies. Gotta work on my splotches--got bigger than I intended.  
Since I included a button, I'm also entering the challenge at A Blog Named Hero. Wishing you a great week. I'll be busy getting ready for my sister's visit, but hope to make a couple cards. Thanks so much for stopping by.
