Autumn Flowers and/ or Colors at House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards.  This month we're asking you to create a project using fall flowers, and or the colors from the inspiration photo...

And here's my cards...

I used both the inspiration photo and colors to create twin backgrounds, inlaying the fall away pieces from one into the other

I changed the popsicle to an ice cream, but kept to the color palette.

Card: SU's whisper white, early espresso, so saffron, peekaboo peach and tiny snippets of mossy meadow for the leaves
Ink: Mowed Lawn and Wild Honey Distress Inks
Tools and embellishments: Birch Press Delfina layer die background die, Sue Wilson's Sweet William (leaves) and Striped Nasturtiums

#336 Use Snippets at Pixie's Snippets Playground (used snippets for flowers and leaves)
#175 Anything Fall Goes at Crafty Gals Corner

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
