Friendship Bunch.....

Hello everyone: I hope Autumn is showing up with it's gorgeous colors in your little corner of the world, up here in NW Indiana, some of the trees around my house, are starting to change into lovely shades of gold and orange, it wont be long till all of them look amazing.
This week over at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we want you to get inspired by this colors to create your cards and join us in the gallery. I'll include our color chart to guide you and inspire you. Here is the card I made and, for more inspiration, just hop over my teammates' blogs to see their beautiful creations.

This image is from a very old and retired Flourishes set called Gerber Daisies. I stamped it onto a panel of Canva water color paper that had been die cut with the Cross Stitched die set from GINA MARIE DESIGNS with Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter.  The pattern paper is from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley and the ribbon from my stash. I'm making a very definite effort to use my ribbon stash, I've been resisting the temptation to buy more, I need to make a dent on the rolls I have.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

Both the sentiment and butterflies are from this pretty set.
Here is the inspiration colors for this fabulous challenge.
We hope you play along, we can't wait to see what you create.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Beautiful card Maria, Great use of the fall colours. As you see when I clicked on your blog on my blog instead of the SOS blog it worked fine. perhaps your link was to the draft on your blog. I wouldn't have access to it lol.
