Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 138

I am back again to share my first card made in my new craft room.  hehe.  This week is my week to host at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  I knew I wanted to find a pretty fall photo that incorporated all the colors of fall.  Unfortunately time was not on my side because of the move, and the sweet Tammy found one for me.  She came to my rescue!


I don't think my card is straight in the photo, but that was the best I could do.  I had to set my light tent and lights up on my make up table.  I still have a lot to unpack and get organized.  There are more room in some places and less in others....I have to figure out how to make it work.  


I used the new fall set called Season of Thanks.  I think the image reflects the inspiration photo to the "T".  I also used a combination of MME papers and Offray satin ribbon for my bow.


I am always running out of room for my sentiment so I added it inside.  I like the more finished look it gives the inside of the card.  Besides, Flourishes has THE BEST selection of sentiments to go along with their sets and they range from a simple word or two to a nice sentiment for the inside.  I love that!

This is such a beautiful card.. I remember when I first started visiting your blog you used a lot of images from the graphic fairy.. and now you are using so many wonderful stamped images.. I have come to the conclusion that you have a knack of picking out such great images either way!! This one is so lovely and your coloring is awesome..
