Autumn Flowers

Hi all! And a warm welcome to my new followers.
I haven't been able to take any photo's for over a week, as I dropped my SLR camera and it had to go away for repairs. And now we have terrible dark weather conditions.  So my photo today is not brilliant.
I have made a card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #188. The challenge is a 'Fall Theme'. So I made my card to reflect the lovely fall flowers that are around just now...
For my card, I used Flourishes - 'Garden Picks' set of stamps, which includes the lovely jar stamp and three different flower sprays. I also used Kraft-Core nostalgic collection for my base card, along with some ribbed Kraft card and cream watercolour card. The dies I used are Spellbinders labels twenty-eight. My image was coloured with ProMarkers.  I completed my card with a die cut flower spray.  I coloured the flower and leaves with distress inks and I added some gold stamen to the centre of my flower. Finally my red seam binding bow and a pearl brad from my stash.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenge...

Thank you for stopping by

Hi Sasha,

Am visiting here instead of sending you an email...
You were wondering what potlucks are:
When I was a little girl and my dad was in the Army, I remember we used to have potlucks. Like everyone who came got what ever dish they had cooked - something like 'bring a dish' except that potlucks are more casual and fun...
Much love,

Monica
