Autumn colors and Sunflowers

I'm here to share my DT card for the new challenge over at Catch the Bug, where we havea PHOTO CHALLENGE this week.

I was inspired by the colors and sunflowers. I colored the image with my Promarkers. The sentiment I stamped onto the image and heat set with gold EP. The background is embossed with an embossing folder, I inked the raised pattern and added more gold EP. I kept the card clean and added no embellies.

This card is also for:
Addicted to Stamps and More - #167 Make Your Mark
Crafty Cardmakers - Autumn Colours
Pattie's Creations - Fall or Halloween Image
Sweet Stamps - # 237 Anything Goes

This embossed background is stunning, such a great texture you have given it!!! Love it so much! And I think it matches very well with the clear image on the top layer. Your card has a very autumnal feel!

Love this fall floral ensemble, and the coloring is terrific. Liked the way you've got the jar vase colored with the highlights on the sunflower petals and the pumpkin. Also love the metallic look of the embossing the frame. Great rustic compliment to this autumn arrangement, with the chocolate of the cardbase. Beautiful card. TFS & Hugs
