Atlantic Hearts 228 - Thankful Fall Flowers

It is getting to that most beautiful season of the year - autumn in Ontario. The days are cooler and there has already been hints of frost in local areas. Furnaces are starting to come on overnight... I LOVE IT! It's my favourite season of the year. 

One of the new paper packs in the brand new Holiday Expressions catalog is called Falling for You and it is the perfect autumn collection - filled with fall colours and patterns. I chose to use that paper pack and one coordinating stamp set to create my card for the Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge this week. 

I also rotated the sketch 90 degrees and added my sentiment to the bottom. The background was created by inking an embossing folder and then placing a piece of White Daisy cardstock inside and running it through my embossing machine. It produced this gorgeous background. 

 I did brush the flowers with the Gold Shimmer Brush - here is a close up to show that.

And this week's sketch...
