Autumn Mums

Hi everyone! I really enjoyed creating this card and hope you like it as much as I do. I've been playing along with the Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge and loving all the cute images. This week's image is this Autumn Mums digital stamp by Designed2Delight.  I'm also entering this card in the Delightful Inspiration Die Cut Divas challenge.

My card base is Real Red layered with White Cardstock then Hazel Patterned Paper. The shadow strip is another of the Hazel Patterned Papers layered on Real Red. I added a straight stitch around the edges of both patterned papers. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.

I die cut and embossed the image using Standard Circles Small Nestabilities and layered it on Real Red die cut using the Classic Scalloped Circles Small Nestabilities. The butterfly was punched out of Aqua Mist Cardstock and embellished with Snow Pearls. To further embellish the card I added White Satin Ribbon with a matching bow and a Snow Pearl in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Stunning, love the stitching and butterfly with this image. The pale green really makes the darker autumn colors pop. This is fabulous! Thank you for joining us at the D2D weekly progressive challenge. Hope to see you play along again.
