It's time for another challenge at Stamps R Us and for the next two weeks the theme is Through the Garden Gate and is sponsored by Heartsong Designs. For my card, I chose the November Chrysanthemum digi and kept it fairly simple. I coloured the flower spray with Copics and then sponged/rubbed in Tim Holt's Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Warmest Regards set. The embossed flowers along the side were done with some little Cuttlebug embossing strips I've had forever and I don't even know the name of them anymore. I tried something different this time... no bright pin or fuschia coloured pearls so I thought I'd try to colour them with Copics. I've read that you can do this - it really does work and you can match your pearls with your paper or image perfectly.
Make sure you head on over to the Stamps R Us challenge blog because the rest of the design team have some wonderful inspiration for you to check out.
