November Chrysanthemums

Having left last week's Daring cardmakers challenge till the last evening, I decided I would do today's challenge on the first day rather than leave it.

So this is for DCM Chrysanthemum challenge - it is the flower of the month for November and also is in celebration of DCM's birthday as they move into their 6th year - way to go!

I used the sketch for Clean & Simple 165:

Colours are for Some odd girl nouveau challenge - they shared this beautiful inspiration photo:


The yellow papers - four or five different patterns - are unknown (I think I received them in a swap ages ago). I distressed all edges with spiced marmalade DI. The flowers are made from three different sets and sizes of nesties mixed up with American crafts pearl brads, glittered ribbon and gold foiled sentiment (sorry about the flash glare) from stash.
