Color Throwdown Challenge 15

CTD15 Banner

For this week's challenge, Broni highlights some beautiful fall colors:  So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss, Really Rust & Chocolate Chip.  I can smell autumn in all these colors!

CTD15 Swatch

I had been wanting to do a card using Sketch Challenge 194 from a few weeks ago, and I thought this would be a great time!  I found an assortment of DP's, stamped and colored this sweet daisy and vase image from Asela Hopkins' Flowers for Daisy, did a tiny little bit of paper piecing and finished it off with some twill.  I did not put a sentiment on it; I'll put that on when I send the card.  You can't see it in the photo, but I used a sparkly Jelly Roll pen on the water & vase, and in the centers of the flowers.   Hope you like it!
