Fall Flower



Loved this week's Verve sketch - no skewed panels or multiple layers to have to contend with...happy sigh... :)   Thanks, Amber!

This Stella and Rose DP has some great fall colours so out it came.  I resisted the urge, though it was touch and go for a while, to make another card with a maple leaf  LOL!

Instead, I used my favorite card them of flowers.  These PTI flower dies are so much fun and I used all three dies in this set to create this flower.  SU's leaf die finished the flower nicely, the turquoise ribbon gave the card a nice pop of colour (though it looks much more blue in the picture than it actually is) and since the right side seemed a bit empty and no stamp image or sentiment I used worked for me, I added a few butterflies.  Also entering this at the Ribbon Carrousel.

Finished my work for hubby for the time being so I get to spend some time creating today - yeah!   Hope your day allows you a little creative time too :)
