Orange Roses for Fall

Hello!  I was inspired by the colors and the roses in the photo inspiration challenge Fall Floral at Curtain Call.  I chose to use Gina K Stamps Old Country Roses to make roses with Memento Potter's Clay, SU Ruby Red, and Memento Rhubarb Stalk inks for the 3 step stamps.  I fussy cut the blossoms and chose to die cut stems with Memory Box English Rose Stem die cut.  I cut the stems and leaves from GKD Fresh Asparagus and inked them to highlight the details.  I assembled these elements on a background that I made with an EF Woodgrain, Scor-pal, Gray Flannel ink, Creamy Caramel ink, and white CS.  I placed it on a mat of Copper Metallic CS and then a card base of Rusty Orange.  The GKD sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Copper EP.  Finished with a bit of Orange Twine.  I must admit that the photo does not do justice to my card...did not capture the depth and looks so much better in real life.  Trust me!
