Autumn Thinking of You

I'm on a mission to use up some of my image stash. I find that I create lots of 'snippets' and colored images that accumulate in a basket and never get used. This didn't quite turn out how I'd hoped, but at least it's a completed card! I think I got a little heavy handed with the sepia accents. :o)

Photo Inspiration ~ InStyles Stamp Challenge
I was greatly inspired by the colors and fall feeling in this pic.
Stamp Vacation Get the Music in You Challenge ~ Garden in the Rain
365 Cards Day 183 ~ Digging Deep Recipe
An item that is at least 6 months old (watercolor crayons)
2 sheets of patterned paper that you've never used (new stack)
An embellishment that you've had for more than a year (lace)
A stamp that you've never used but you've had for at least a year (SU image)

My Creation

Image Detail
I started with the sepia on the flower centers...just right.
Then I moved on to accenting the patterned paper...not too bad. I think my error happened when I decided to free hand squiggles on the solid paper! LOL.
