I am participating in this fabulous event and here is
my first card -

My background was made with Tim's Oxide Inks in
Abandoned Coral, Salty Ocean,
Peeled Paint and Fossilized Amber.
I then cut my flowers from
to match the background
in a lighter shade for contrast.
Also cut out small flowers from the same die set
in various colours. Added pearls to the centres of the flowers.
The sentiment is from


While I had the Happy Everything stamp set out I made
another card with one of my favourite stamps - the
STAMPlorations Large French Marigold

It was heat embossed clear then coloured with
 Pumpkin Fiesta, Hog's Wart Orange Magical's
and Nuvo Solar Flare Shimmer Powder.
The background was smooched with
Nuvo Solar Flare and Green Parade
The bottom half was inked with Tim's Oxide's in
Fossalized Amber, Peeled Paint and Salty Ocean.
I then stenciled on top with white texture paste
using ARTplorations Fairy Tale Forest
Sentiment was heat embossed with Lindy's Pumpkin Fiesta
from the above stamp set.
Finished with some gold thread behind the popped marigold
with tiny beads in the centre.
Here is a close up of the shimmer on the flower.
