Atlantic Hearts 230 - Grateful Flowers


Another great sketch at Atlantic Hearts... With autumn starting to turn the leaves to colour in my area, I wanted to do a card with autumn colours and gold is such a perfect fit with the oranges and yellows. I didn't add any red or deep orange to this card as I wanted the focus to be a little more subdued. 

The flowers are triple stamped using a new stamp set called Beautiful You and layered on top of the leaves. I set apart the layer background for the sentiment rather than just piling the pieces on top of each other - I just thought it looked more interesting. The background is created using a SU embossing folder.
