Autumn Flowers

Good morning everyone and I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was quite busy as it was my birthday yesterday so we went out for lunch and had family round for tea and cake later on. Lots of lovely pressies too!
Today's post is to tell you about the new challenge today over at Make My Monday with a theme chosen by your truly of Autumn Flowers as I really love chrysanthemums and other Autumn florals. Here's my inspiration:

I've used a favourite flower stamp by Circa Design which I stamped with VersaFine Olympia Green and heat embossed with clear powder. I then coloured the image with Promarkers. I die cut it into an oval panel with a Papermania die.
The flourish background paper was made by stamping the flourishes with Versamark ink and heat embossing with pearl green powder. I then sponged on Wild Honey and Dried Marigold Distress inks.
The green panel is Canson Mi-Teintes paper dry embossed with a floral trellis folder.
I assembled the card as you see, adding vintage linen lace and a sentiment panel with and embossed mat using scraps of leftover paper.

I hope you can enter as I'd love to see you there.
Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
