Fall Florals

I hadn't made a faux tile in a long time, so decided to use that technique for my Fall Florals card, the theme of the Impression Obsession challenge and the photo inspiration at Fusion.  I began by adding Distress Inks scattered straw, ripe persimmon & peeled paint to a small panel. The little flower from Impression Obsession Petite Flowers 1 was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia.  Then I clear embossed the panel several times to give the look of a tile.  The IO sentiment (Blessings) was also stamped in Vintage Sepia & clear embossed.  I hand cut the flag & dry embossed the background panel.  Simple card, but pretty flat & ready to mail for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
