The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Cozy Plaids

Hello and Happy Wednesday to all!  It's time for another challenge from The Sisterhood of Crafters.  This week Diane is our host and she has challenged us to design a card using some cozy plaids.  It's a perfect theme for me as the weather has turned cooler and you know that Autumn is nearly here.

Autumn (Fall) is my favorite time of the year.  I love how the various Fall colors work so well with the plaid.  What doesn't show up well it the shimmer I added to the flowers, leaves and the word celebrate.  The second photo gives you an idea of what the sparkle is like.

Stamp Set:  Build-A-Flower:  Cattleya (Altenew)
Inks:  Candy Corn, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato Pie, Lemon Meringue (Taylored Expressions); Buttercream, Jet Black (Altenew)
Brusho Crystal Colors:  Brilliant Red, Prussian blue, Yellow, Moss Green, Gamboge
Cardstock:  Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede (Stampin' Up!); Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions); Watercolor Paper (Strathmore)
