Another One Layer Card for "Less is More".....

Hello friends: I've been having a lot of fun creating Autumn cards, can you tell? He, he. It's my favorite season of the year, I love the colors and the weather too. This time I made this card with the Altenew set called Persian Motifs and I'm linking it to the "Less is More" One Layer Card challenge , here is my card.
This set is so versatile, you can give this lovely images any color you want to suit the season or the occasion. This time I heat embossed them in gold onto Canson water color paper and colored them with this SU markers:
Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and More Mustard, I love this combination of colors for Autumn. I stamped the Gorgeous Grunge dots in SU Hello Honey.
Here you can see the shine of the gold on each leaf and petal. The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "A Wreath for all Seasons".
I want to thank you for stopping by, it's always so sweet to read your comments.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Wow isn't that Persain Motif's gorgeous in these shades and embossed in Gold! Love the way the petals seem to be flying away in the Fall Breeze! Absolutely beautiful Maria!

I love this stamp set Patti, I was going to emboss the images in that pearlescent embossing powder but I chose gold instead, I think it looks better with those colors.
Thank you, my friend.
