Fancy Flowers by Penny Black
I guess it's pretty obvious that my choice of colors for the flowers in the cart was inspired by the patterned paper! This is more paper from my new 6x6 pad by Doodlebug Design called Happy Harvest, a gift from my friend, Sally. I remember when we lived in Wisconsin that it was always in late September that the colors in the flowers became deeper and brighter, as if they knew they had one last chance to look beautiful before the frost came.
The cart image was stamped and embossed and colored with Copics. I then taped the scalloped Nestie to the paper and ran it through the Big Shot. Pop dotted it onto the card base and added some diecut leaves and an acorn, also a gift from Sally! I added Glossy Accents on the flowers and parts of the wheel and cart, just to shine things up a bit. The sentiment is Penny Black and I stitched it to the card base.
This card is being sent to my niece, Kim, who sometimes checks in on my blog! Hope she forgets today ...
Cool and overcast here today! It's a windows open kind of a day!! You still have time to enter the color combo challenge at the Penny Black blog! The challenge closes on Friday. If you can't enter the challenge, click on the "gallery" option and be prepared to be inspired!!
Thanks for the visit!
