Celebrate Fall with Mums of Many Colors

One of my very favorite flowers for fall is mums because of all the beautiful colors available.  I just love this  mum stamp from  Flourishes and love how detailed it is. I made this card for Timeless Tuesday challenge and sketch challenge for Annabelle's Stamps. I began with ivory CS for the base with a mat of green pattern paper. Cut another ivory mat which I embossed and placed on  a red textured CS mat with a scallop border. My focus image was stamped and colored with Copics and cut with a circle die with leaves extending beyond the circle. Restamped and cut out the center flower and popped up for dimension. Also added flower soft to the 2 buds which I hope shows in the photo. Finished with pearls and a stamped sentiment.
