Autumn Flowers!

I am very excited today to share with you a card I made a few days ago using the new 'Autumn Flowers' stamp and die set from Clearly Besotted Stamps. I just got this set and have already made 3 cards using them and love them all.

My card today was inspired by Anita's card here. I loved how she had embossed the background with white on white. I used this idea to make my own background so I could enter the challenge at Clearly Besotted Stamps. I heat embossed a couple of the big leaf stamps and a few smaller single leaves-to fit in with this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I have used cream embossing powder on cream card stock. I have used glossy accents on the top leaf die to give it a shiny feel and to add more texture. It was quite hard to take a photo of this especially with all the dull weather we are having!

This was the best photo out of about 25!!

If you pop back tomorrow you will see how I have used these stamps to create a Xmas card!

Enjoy your day x
