PP #364 & CTS #241 - thank you

This week's Paper Players' challenge theme is Autumn Floral, so I thought this card might fit right into it.

Here's the banner of the challenge:


I used Cherry Wood and Birch Wood paper for the flower, and Woodgrain cardstock to create a nature feel. The color scheme is fall.

The top and bottom panels were raised with foam tape, and the sentiment and the gold strips were heat-embossed.

I LOVE the Fantasy Floral die set. As I said in a previous blog post, it's so versatile. I used it with solid color cardstock, watercolored paper, and wood paper this time. It worked wonderfully with all of them. I'm looking forward to using it with alcohol ink smooshed paper next time.

I'm linking up to CAS(E) this Sketch #241 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes), too.

Thanks for stopping by!
