From the Heart Stamps Sketch Challenge 40 - Autumn Flower Jar

Happy Monday!  Today's card features the From the Heart Stamps image Autumn Flower Jar, and was designed using the FTHS Sketch #40.  Love this image for Fall cards!  The variety of leaves and flowers really allows your creativity to play.  As for the Sketch, it was a definitely a challenge for me.  So unusual and tough for me to envision.  However, I didn't give up, and am quite pleased with the results!

For this card, my recipe is:
Image: Autumn Flower Jar
Paper: Bazzill cardstock, Bella Blvd Thankful patterned papers
Coloring Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Momenta Wooden Leaves, Reflections Rhinestones
Special Techniques: Chalked image background

Hope you play along with the design team at the From the Heart Stamps blog.  Remember, EVERYONE who enters will receive $1 credit to the From the Heart Stamps digital store.  Use it as a discount, or save the credits up to earn a free stamp.  Linky will close on Sunday at 10 pm CST.

Update on Hubby's Father:  He is still in the hospital.  One day he appears to be getting stronger; the next he's not able to feed himself or get out of bed unassisted; then cycle begins again.  Hopeful today will bring some more definitive answers about his condition and prognosis.  Thank you for your kind words of support, and keeping us in your prayers.
