Autumn Roses

Welcome to another challenge from Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This time it is Anything Goes!  we know how much everyone loves those.  Our three awesome sponsors are:

Sparkle N Sprinkle

Dr. Digi's House of Stamps

Limited Runs Stamps

I chose to use this beautiful image from Limited Runs Stamps: Birdhouse #1.  I colored it up and then added some white gel pen for highlights and added glitter around the edges of the petals.
I don't have a lot of fall themed papers, so I created my own with a script background stamp and added a leaf stamp on top; then I colored up the leaves and I really love how it turned out.  I used a layer of mulberry paper behind my focal image; love the softness it creates.  I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Fantastic paper. Love the colors and the card. The glittery prettiness on the leaf is so nice. I haven't seen mulberry paper in a while. Nice addition. Thank you for joining us at Come And Get It challenge. Bunny DT

We'll take it! Very creative. This is a gorgeous card. I love how you made the background paper yourself and the addition of mulberry paper. I have some of that gathering dust somewhere . . .

Thanks for putting on your thinking cap and taking on our Name Game challenge at Cut it Up!
