Feeling Like Fall

It's definitely feeling like fall around here!  The days are mild, the nights are cool and the leaves are turning those gorgeous fall colors we all love.  

My inspiration for todays card came from the random growing of a sunflower in our backyard this summer.  We didn't plant it but think maybe a bird dropped the seed?  Anyhow, it turned into the most beautiful sunflower plant I've ever seen.

So here is my card inspired by the gorgeous and ever so symmetrical sunflower.  I also wanted to share that I was playing along with the Mojo Monday Card Sketch #546 for the first time.  This is a great way to jumpstart creativity with a plan for layout as a starting point.  Its super fun to see all the different way crafters incorporate the sketches.

Heres a pic of the Sketch #546 so you can see what I was working with 

I used the Painted Harvest stamp set by Stampin' Up!  One of my faves for the lovely details when you layer them together.  The photorealistic quality is so fun and looks different with every color combo you try.

I used gold stickles as my embellishments and brushed ink on the sides of my cardstock papers to tone them down a little and soften them.

A nifty trick I used with the greeting was to bend the photopolymer stamp around in the shape of the circle die cut so it would fit nicely around the sunflower image.  I love that photopolymer stamps are so versatile in this way!

Here is my finished card again.  Those little acorn accents are the cutest!

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Thank you for stopping by :)
