CIC80 A Rose by Any Other Name

Hi,  Welcome to Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #80 and just look at these delightful fall cupcakes.  Aren't they pretty!  This week the sponsor for the challenge is A Passion For Stamps.  They have a lot of great digital images so be sure to check them out.

I chose this digital image (Rose Topiary) for my card.  I love Roses and mixed with the berries I thought it would make a great Autumn card.  So what do you think?

I started with some warm colors that to me reflect Autumn perfectly. My card base is Cherry Cobbler that I layered with Cajun Craze that I distressed.  The pattern paper layer is from Daisy D's.  You can't see it in the photo but I embossed this piece with the Diamond Embossing folder.  It really adds some great texture to the card.  I colored the image with Prisma Color pencils.  The planter portion was cut out and I used (Hot Glue) to mount it over the original and added some moss.  The berries were highlighted with a Spica Glitter pen and I added a Dragonfly charm, some flowers in Cherry Cobbler with Orange brads.  The border punch is (Martha Stewart) and I used Chocolate Chip cs. then tied it with Pumpkin Pie ribbon to complete the card.
 This is one of those cards that I really liked after it was completed even though I struggled to get it put together just the way I wanted it to be.

Be sure to check out what the other Sweeties have done with the Inspiration photo.  You won't be disappointed.
