Feel of Fall.

Happy Saturday!

I made this card for Flourishes Feel of fall challenge. If you enter the sketch you name will be entered for the chance to win all four of their new sets! Just go to the Flourishes Newsletter and you can read all about it. I do not own many of the Flourish stamps sets so, I made this card using a few different sets. I used fall colors with just a bit of green to the card. The ribbon was a big challenge for me, I am not very good at tying ribbons, I can't tell you how many times I tried to tie and untied this bow! Finally with some fluffing, twisting, walking away for 5 mins, and  glue dots it is in the right place, I am very envious of fellow stampers that tie beautiful big bows. I need to go to bow tying class! *grin*
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, French script, simple friendship.
Cardstock: very vanilla, summer sun, caramel.
Ink: rose red, pumpkin pie, apricot appeal, close to coco.

I have trouble with big bows too, so skipped it, but you did a great job with yours. I love how you have built the scene for your butterfly, the grass is super cool too, nice job!
