This card is for 2 Flourishes challenges:
1. For Timeless Tuesday we were given a beautiful inspirational fall photo of a porch filled with pumpkins and fall coloured mums.
2. For the Bring Back Beautiful we were to use a technique in our creations, I choose "masking". Boy did I mask!!! I started with the flowers masking with each addition of flower, then masked out the fir treed in the stamp and instead stamped the two fall trees form Flourishes tree set, then masked off everything stamped so far and stamped the cottage scene. Finally I drew in the clouds. The sentiment was placed on a curve and the banner hand drawn. The clouds are glittered, the sky is watercoloured, the rest is copic coloured. A bit of ribbon and a couple of pearls and I called it finished.

What a beautiful card - a masking masterpiece! It must have taken you quite a bit of time to do all the masking, layout and coloring - but, wow, it's gorgeous. I love your wonderful arched sentiment - and topped with a beautiful ribbon/bow! (Into my favs)
