Enjoy Every Bouquet

Hello friends.  October is winding down and before you know it, Christmas will be upon us.  I like to think of  November as the beginning of the end because that's when everyone seems to be rushing for something.  School holidays is about to start in 3 weeks and that definitely requires proper planning for the kids to stay occupied and fingers crossed we get through till new years. 

Back to my card, I initially thought of submitting this for a challenge but then decided against it because obviously I was having second thoughts about it.  Not for the card itself but the time that's lapse since I did the first submission post.  You can read about it here.  

I used watercolor pencil to color a few flowers and leaves both from discontinued stamp sets from Lawn Fawn.  And of course I fussy cut them then layered them onto a 3 3/4" x 5.5" kraft paper. 

I added 2 layers of foam tapes to parts of the leaves and flowers to get a raised effect.  Some parts of the flowers and leaves I've adhered to the kraft paper.  The kraft paper was actually embossed and had it been a white cardstock, you'd be able to see the gold metallic finish on it.

This card took me a longer time to finish because of the coloring- that I am still learning to improve, and also from fussy cutting the flowers and the intricate leaves.  I love this flower and leaves set so much and you'll see me using them on my future cards quite a lot.  

And as always thank you so much for stopping by.  If you want to share your go-to flower stamp sets do leave a link on the comment below, I would love to hop by and see it.  See ya!
