November Chrysanthemum

Hello everyone!  This is my first post as a Sweet n Sassy Design Diva.  I am absolutely thrilled to be here and feel that I have been given a gift.  So I hope that I express my gratitude by doing Korin and the rest of the team proud with the designs I share with you.

This month's release is absolutely fantastic and today I share a card with you using the November Chrysanthemum stamp set.  I have really loved the monthly flower sets that have been released these past several months and this one is no exception.  Although a bit tricky (for me) to color to do it justice, the image is fantastic.

I was inspired by the sketch from Sketch and Stash and also added a technique that I'm not quite sure what its called, perhaps double embossing.  The white background is embossed with both Birds & Swirls and Swiss Dots embossing folders - I really love this look.  I went with stronger violet tones on the flowers, but really this flower can be colored in many different hues as the real flowers come in so many hues, but I wanted a stronger color to stand up against the paler background and base.

I hope that you enjoy my card.  I wish you a very Happy Thursday!

Many hugs & blessings,
