Single Fall Mum

Hi, it's Misti today!
Have you seen all of the mums blooming?  They seem to have popped up in every store I have gone in lately.  I really like the burgundy ones the best!  The burgundy flowers with the green leaves just seem to pop.

I had a piece of the green designer paper leftover, so I used it to build my card around it.  Since it wasn't big enough for a whole panel, I thought it would be a perfect accent backdrop for the mum.

Starting out with my base card, I adhered a piece of black cardstock.  To add a little dimension, I embossed a white piece of cardstock using the Dots embossing folder.

Using the dotted scallop border from Blueprints 6 by My Favorite Things, I cut a piece of black cardstock to add a pop of color, between the green designer paper and the white embossed piece.

I stamped the single Chrysanthemum in black and water colored it using the Barn Door Distress Ink Marker and Peeled Paint Distress Ink Marker.  It dried quickly since I only used two colors.  I layered black cardstock behind image panel and taped everything down.

I pulled out my black pearls and put one in each corner of my card.
Supplies used:
Chrysanthemum by Flourishes
Dots embossing folder
Blueprints 6 by My Favorite Things
White and Black cardstock
