Painted Harvest Asters

Hey all! Happy Friday! We've survived another work week :)
I found some time in the stamp room last night and I went up with an idea in my head. I was walking on my front deck this week and noticed my Asters were blooming. I walked over closer and looked down at them. My first thought...I can do that with Painted Harvest!  Here was my view (click to enlarge)

Love these, and the inspiration they give!!

Here is the card I came up with, actually two versions. Seems like lately I sit down to create two of something but come out with variations! :)

Love them both and they are very similar. Only difference being the leaf stamping. One is just the "outline" image, the other has both inside and outside.

Card base is Highland Heather, accent layer of Pineapple Punch and background of Shimmery White. So pretty in person!! I stamped the flower and leaves on a separate piece of Shimmery White. And I fussy cut the flowers again. Don't like it, but for effect will do it! Flower was stamped with Just Highland Heather. I debated adding Gorgeous Grape as the inside flower stamp but was afraid it would be too dark. So, I stamped off the background of the flower twice, rotating the block 90 degrees in between. I stamped the center first in Pineapple Punch, did the two background flower images, then the inside flower full strength. Leaves were separate in Pear Pizzazz. One I stamped the background then the accent outline. The other just the outline. Both punched with the coordinating Leaf punch. Happy Birthday at the bottom in Highland Heather from Perennial Birthday. Ribbon in Highland Heather, retired from a Sale-A-Bration feature.

I don't think it shows in the scan, but the center (Pineapple) has a Shimmery Crystal Effects layer. **LOVE** Can't remember the last time I used Crystal Effects or anything like it, but I knew I would love this! You will be seeing more! New item in the Holiday Catalog.
