And here is the card I created for the Hop. My favorite season is fall. I decided to create a standard A9 card with Fall colors. I absolutely adore sunflowers, and the new Rustic Sunflower collection is beautiful!! I find that is easy to just create all of my flowers and leaves in one sitting. This way, I just pluck them up and put them on!! The base of my card had a beautiful green paper from the Clematis paper collection. I layered on the Elaborate Oval Frame in yellow and brown cardstock. I used the Sentiments Stamp Set for the title. Team mate Kathy Clement inspires me to use ribbon. I have a TON!! May as well use it!! So I topped my card with a bow. 

To create my double layer flowers, I stamped the flowers and leaves in a brown ink. For the flowers, I used 2 different colors of Distress ink. Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold with a little bit of Vintage photo on the middles. I used the HC shaping tools to give my flowers dimension. Then I layered the using 2 die cuts, staggering the petals. I then painted them with some collage medium, which is basically watered down glue, and sprinkled some Crystal Clear on them. I used some brown Flower Soft in the middle and on some of them, I sprinkled on some Express-O Yourself Prills. 

For the leaves, I used a brown ink to stamp them, then used 2 different Distress inks on them. Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint. I also touched them up a bit with Vintage Photo. I used Crystal Clear on them as well. 

Thank You for joining me on todays hop. I hope that you are inspired to whip up some Rustic Sunflowers!!! Until next month!! xo Happy Fall!!
