Found this image on our inspiration site (IC517):https://www.pinterest.com/pin/1266706120156770/ and I liked the layout of flowers around the perimeter. I went a bit darker with my colors so that I could also meet challenge (F4A297): fall colors. First I embossed the text across the bottom with white embossing. Colored on the stamp with markers - using 2 colors for both the leaves and the flowers - and spritzed with water, then stamped. Used sponges to blend ink around the edges. Stamped sentiment and then splattered with diluted inks of the same colors and matted before attaching to card front.

Maura this is fantastic. I have been sitting here for the longest time taking it in. The colours are terrific and your brilliant splattering is the icing on the cake. This is safely tucked away in My Favs!!
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! This drew me in, then blew me away with all of its components that work to create such a cohesive and unique work of art. WOW!!! This really isn't something I've ever tried, but I absolutely LOVE it! You've inspired me to try... I think I could have a whole lot of fun with this! :) WONDERFUL shading and beauty from afar, and just as much in detail when I took a closer look, which I think is true artistry at its best. WELL-done!!! :) This HAS to be in my favs, I need to keep this for inspiration to look at again and again.
