I have a quickie post about a design challenge you might be interested in. I learned about it from Jennifer McGuire. If you haven't heard about her, your should really check her out here. She is the best parts of technician and mad scientist combined. She is constantly exploring and sharing her discoveries.
Fusion wants the sketch or the photo to inspire you. You can find out more about the challenge here.
I decided to use the sketch. For the round circle I chose the aster from my Doodle Blossom Stamp Set--you know how I love that set! I colored the flowers with Derwent Intense Pencils blending the red, orange, and yellow with a tiny bit of water. I traced around it with a Copic black multiliner. Fussy cutting popped the flower from the paper. For the center of the blossom, I added some Mahogany Stickles, and pushed the glitter glue around the the tip of the bottle until they were just were I wanted them.

I grabbed some card stock and cut it into a 4 1/4 x 11 inch piece which when folded makes 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card. ( I know, I know, my math skills are epic). Using the same aster stamp I inked it up with Distress Carved Pumpkin and Mustard seed. The aster makes an outline impression which is perfect for coloring, but I wanted just the outline for extra interest. I found some matching scrapbook paper from my giant drawer of paper, and my little flower looked great on it. But the paper I stamped the flowers on was white, and the scrapbook paper was tan. I blended on some Distress Brushed Corduroy and it was just right.
I centered my card on some white card stock. I heat embossed my sentiment with Distress Platinum on some brown card stock and put it down on the bottom. I popped my flower next to it. I had some orange gems from some epic clearance sale I found. My card was done.
I really enjoyed this challenge. I don't believe I've created a card quite like this before and it was fun. I learned a lot from it. I want to thanks Fusion Card Challenge for all of the fun. You are invited to play, too.
P.S. Not as quick as I thought.
