Flower Patch CCMC323

Hello to you, my stamper friends! I have a sketch this week from Create with Connie and Mary . If you ever look at cards on Pinterest you may have noticed a trend to use layers that are a little "off kilter" as I call it. Today's sketch incorporates such a layer and I had fun with it - hope you do to!
I went with a floral card using some beautiful fall colors from the Park Lane designer paper series.

The focal point of my card is a flower that I stamped with the Flower Patch stamp set and cut with its coordinating framelits. Then I sponged the edges with soft suede. Once I had it to my liking I layered it on a frame that I embossed with one of the new Fun Frames embossing folders. I had to cut it by hand but it was easy to cut. Before I adhered it I looped some Crushed Curry Baker's Twine behind the flower. 

I thought I would struggle with this sketch because I tend to like things to line up straight and even, but this card came together easily. I love when that happens!

Here are the supplies. All Stampin' Up!

I love the way you layered your flower Lisa and the red really stands out!

I love the slightly aged/vintage look of your card Lisa - a nice alternative style for the Flower Patch set.
