I know it isn't the Fall season when we normally see chrysanthemums because it is 98 degrees today with a heat index of 110-115 degrees. I guess that means stay inside and craft where it is nice and cool.
I think these mums are so pretty and cool looking. It is Flourishes-A Year in Flowers, Sept. thru Dec.
I wanted to enter my card into the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge #126 to do embossing, wet or dry. I embossed with the Cuttlebug Bird Call embossing folder. And, my sentiment is from Flourishes Friendly Reminders.
I tried a new technique today I found on Flourishes Limelight Designer blog. Dina Kowal showed how to get dimension with your flowers by cutting and using a stylus on the back to pop them up. My top two flowers and the lower side flower are the ones I did. I hope you can see it in the picture. It looks really pretty irl.
I am also playing in The Play Date Cafe challenge #89. Listed are the colors for their challenge:
