Pitcher of Mums

I am pretty proud of the way this card turned out. I seem to have the best luck working with Cosmo Cricket papers, especially discontinued lines of CC paper, like this one from the Gretel collection. This is my last scrap of the 'Butterflies' paper, boo hoo... At least I think they are discontinued, very hard to find them anywhere.

The blue BG paper is not Cosmo Cricket, though. I wanted to use my huge tapestry background stamp from Impression Obsession again ('cause it's beeeautiful!) so I created my own DP using Corduroy Distress Ink on Ocean Tides (Papertrey Ink) cardstock. And I must say, I love the way it looks!
I colored the pitcher of mums with colored pencils (and very, very tiny stumps), outlined the entire image with a Copic, distressed/aged all the edges, did some sewing, and TA DA! A lovely harvest colored card.
I hope you like it as much as I do, thanks for stopping by!
