A Little Summer with a little Fall

Given the Fall Blog Hop.. I was still in an Autumn mode. So, I combined two challenges for this card, CPS and Ribbon Carousel.

The sketch for this week really intrigued me..

I really wasn't sure how I was going to tackle this one... and then... I got a package from Gina K. The cone flowers spoke to me as a great image for this card. The flowers are actually pieced on the main panel and they are colored with Copics. I added some Sakura stardust clear and some crystal stickles to add a little bling on the card. In that same package, I received a pad of Echo Park DP. I Love the colors in that pack, so you'll see one of those sheets used here. The half circles are cut with Big Scallop nesties. In the spirit of this week's Ribbon Carousel challenge I added a bit of brown bakers twine to the burlap ribbon and on the panel behind it. The sentiment comes from an older Gina K set, Friendship Blooms.

Thanks for stopping by today!
