Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Challenge - Autumn Colours

(Please Scroll Down For My Flourishes Challenge Post!)

Good morning lovely bloggers!  It's the first Monday of the month and time for another challenge at the  Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  This month Jane is our hostess, and she has asked us to create something using autumn colours.
I used my Cameo to cut my base card shape and layers. I ran my base card through an eight inch square embossing folder. The second layer was coloured with Spiced Marmalade distress ink, third layer was embossed, and top layer was coloured with Mustard Seed distress ink.
I stamped Happy Birthday with an Anita's stamp I have had for years.
For my autumn spray, I made three ribbon flowers using Antique Gold sheer ruffle edge ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. I added some gold stamen to the centres. You can find instructions on how I made the flowers here. The foliage was cut with the Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings decorative strip die. I coloured all the elements with distress inks.
Why not join in with our challenge for the chance to win something pretty. 
Please visit the blog...and see the beautiful cards and projects my team mates have created for your inspiration.

I am entering my card into the Color Throwdown Challenge #211

Thank you for stopping by!
Sasha xx

Hi Sasha, at first glance I thought this was a cake... the spiced marmalade makes it look edible... so pretty. And the ribbon flowers are stunning and a perfect match.
Love,
Monica
