Walk in the Garden

I'm trying to get back into my creative groove and was thrilled to actually use one of the Basic Grey paper packs I recently bought (on clearance, of course). Fall is my favorite season and this card made me feel ready to bring on the pumpkins! (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Color Inspiration ~ Roses on Paper ~ The Colors of Fall Orange, Brown, Warm Red
Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day 51 ~ Picture This The red flowers seemed perfect for Rose's garden.
My Creation
I'm really pleased with how this card came out. I had lots of fun coloring Rose.
Image Detail
I colored with Copics and used my Spica's liberally for a bit of sparkle.
I left the inside blank for now. I'll either add a piece of blank cardstock and a stamped sentiment or print out something on the computer.
