Fall & Sunflowers "Missing You"

As I was planning my card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #131 combined with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #163, I got to thinking how much I miss the Fall Season and the fields of Sunflowers back in my hometown in Western New York and created the card with this thought in mind for the Heart2Heart "Home Is" Challenge.    

Poppy, Goldrush, Canary, Cocoa, Kraft

Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Monday Oct 12, 2015 Home is...This week at H2H challenges we are taking a look at our hometowns.

Sue, you've done it again! Another gorgeous card. Love the different pattern papers and that large single flower really give a stunning finish. I got to hand it to you. You're amazing with sketches! I have trouble working with them. Even the the most CAS ones. Thanks so much for joining with us again at Outlawz Monday Greetings this week and for your continuing support. You must know how much we appreciate you. Looking forward to seeing another stunning creation from you next week. Have a lovely week Sue.

Hugs, Christina

Thanks so much for your most generous compliments. I need a sketch to help me arrange a card, and I like to combine them with color challenges as well.

I was sure I left a comment but I don't see it now... I commented that we both made AHSC cards about our memories of fall in New York State. Your card is perfect for the AHSC challenge with a flower made to perfection and the uniqueness of the sequined leaves. Very pretty!
