Blushing Flowers

I'm playing along with MUSETime Out Challenges and  Cupcake Inspirations Challenge this week.

This week's Time Out Inspiration is
'May All your weeds be wild flowers' 
Tracey McNeely is this weeks MUSE Inspiration

I was inspired by Tracey's colors with the gold sentiment, which happen to line right up with Cupcake Inspirations colors and the layout of her card.  (I took a little liberty on the layout)
And, if you haven't checked out Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog yet, you really must!  They have the sweetest, and I mean "SWEETEST" inspiration photo's every week and this week their sponsor is the ever popular Altenew, so you could be the winner of their sweetest stamp set yet!!

Now onto my card:

I started with a diagonal stitched frame from MFT and used their Fall Florals to create this card in blush, red and gold.  I kept the flowers in the blush and red family and just added a touch of green for a couple of the stems and added the sentiment from PTI's Embroidered Blooms, heat embossed in gold.


I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
