Fun Flowers Texture

I saw a Stampin' Up! Only challenge to create a card with texture.  I had seen a card by Sandi Maciver that  inspired this card.  I wanted to use a nice Fall color scheme so I used Elegant Eggplant, Olive Olive, So Saffron and Very Vanilla.  When we do this card at my next Stamp a Stack I will probably use the Fancy Fan folder instead of the Argyle for the background vanilla piece. I love how it turned out!

I sponged the So Saffron flowers with More Mustard ink.  The Old Olive leaves are sponged with Always Artichoke.

Items Used:  Cardstock:  So Saffron, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla.  Ink:  More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant.  Embossing folders:  Argyle, Woodgrain, Lacy Brocade.  Bigz L dies:  Fun Flowers, Autumn Accents.  Punches:  Bird Builder (used the wing for the greenery behind the top flower layer),  Ovals ,  and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack for flower center.  Pearl. Sentiment is from Field Flowers stamp set.  On the leaves, I folded them in half and ran them through the Woodgrain EF with the grain going in the direction I wanted the veins in my leaves to go.  (I learned that nifty trick from my upline Pam!)

Thanks for looking!
