Rust Colored Mums

I'm so glad to have this card to post. You would not believe all that happened as I was making it. I won't go into details as I don't want to start to boo-hoo. LOL This card was completely finished and with a totally different look...and one I liked...but, things went downhill from there. O.K., in the end, I'm happy with it.

I am using the Sketch Challenge 354 on Splitcoaststampers. I really love the rust color cardstock I used and think it works so well in the Autumn creations.  I embossed my panel (recipe below), colored my mums and cut a die cut swirl. The image is from Mark's Finest Papers and the set is Thankful Mums and Pumpkins.

I can't believe that things didn't go smoothly with this card, Benzi. It looks so beautiful!! What could go wrong?? (Ha, I know there are bungles lurking around every turn when you set out to make a card.) The colors and layout are just perfect. Beautiful coloring, too!! I *love* how it turned out--so glad you do, too. :)

Ah, this must be the 'orange' cardstock of which you mentioned in my post recently. ;) I would never label it so, I can see how rusty it is! And it looks great embossed like you did, and with that gorgeous mum.
