Fall Colors Are Showing

 For the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, we are asked to be inspired by the photo on the left  for our creation. I have taken inspiration from the pots of flowers and the pumpkins on display for a fall card. I stamped the Mums from Flourishes "A Year In Flowers" with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics and cut them out. I stamped a GKD stamp (Buds & Vases) of a pot in Memento Potter's Clay and colored with Copics....tried to give the "terra cotta" pot an aged look. The pumpkin stamp from Stampin Up was stamped 3 times with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored also with Copics and cut out. I placed an embossed mat of SU Green PP on the card base of GKD Pumpkin Spice CS. Arranged my cut out elements using pop up dots to give dimension to the flowers and pumpkins. Added sentiment from SU stamped in Potter's Clay ink and cut with Nesties Die. Finished with orange Dew Drops.
