Flowers and more Flowers!

Awww, don't they look purrrdy all grouped together? I had a lot of fun this week playing with some cling sets from Hero Arts. The flowers are so beautiful! I kept in the same color scheme...red, black, cream, yellow and green. What a fun set this is to give away....
Here is my card today specifically for Taylor's sketch challenge. The fall rains are about to start here and when they get going they do not stop for a while....enjoying the last bits of summer.
I used my Jumbo scallop die-namic die from MFT for bottom detail and sanded the edges of the core'dinations cardstock.
My base panel WAS white to begin with. I did some airbrushing in Y21,38 and R02 to achieve the fall sunset look.
I used these butterflies to mimic the three brads going up the side of Taylor's sketch.
I colored these butterflies from Hero with my copics. Can you see the feather blending on the middle butterfly? A combo of Y21, R02. Then I took my spica pens to them so they would shimmer.

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow
Rosie Hughes: Love my Craft Room

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend!
