Fall Flower Silhouettes

It seems like Fall is ages away.  Don't get me wrong, I love Summer, but I've had enough of the days of 90+ degree temperatures lately.  I'd love a few days of 70s and 80s, but I'm not quite ready for Fall and the associated constantly cooling temperatures.

The color combination I used on this card screams Fall to me.  At first I thought of making a Halloween card, but I decided to stretch myself a little and use it in a non-Fall way.  I chose the Summer Silhouettes set, seeing as I just started using it this past week and I'm having fun making card samples with it.  These two colors--Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi are this week's Dynamic Duos.  I stamped my garden and then added the greeting from the Sweet Essentials set.  My white layer is punched on the right side with the scallop edge punch and is mounted on a piece of Pumpkin Pie Patterns Designer Series Paper (from the Brights stack).  I tied some stitched Wild Wasabi grosgrain ribbon around that layer and then mounted everything on my Pumpkin Pie card base.
