Autumn from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies it feels like winter has arrived suddenly but after such lovely weather over the last few weeks my garden is still full of flowers. If this cold weather carries on I'm sure they won't last much longer but they have inspired this card which features images from Autumn Poppy one of the new stamp releases from Chocolate Baroque

I stamped the images on white card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, masking with masking tissue as I went along. I coloured the scene with Graph'It markers and stamped the sentiment in brown Archival ink.

 I've used dark brown card for matting and created a background with shades of green distress inks, overstamped with one of the foliage stamps from the same set. To finish off i've added some pretty ribbon, twine and a wooden button.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Autumn
Eclectic Ellapu: flowers
Jellypark: autumn
Pile it on: Autumn
Stamping Sensations: autumn colours

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
