Painted Harvest Color Challenge CAS 239

The colors for this challenge screamed fall to me and I was so excited to use my new Painted Harvest stamp set to create a card for this challenge.  Only have three colors to use did present a bit of a challenge when trying to create depth and texture.  But, I just used the stamp off and masking techniques to create the look I wanted.  I am used to using a brown shade for the center of the flower, but thought the Fresh Fig worked perfectly to tie in the flowers with the cardstock and the sentiment.

I stamped an extra flower on the insert for the inside of the card as I was working on the card front.  I love the sparkle of Wink of Stella so I added that final touch of bling to the middle of each of the flowers on the front of the card.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but hopefully you can tell it is there.
