Fall Wall Hanging

Good morning everyone, today I have a fun wall hanging inspired by fall.  The other day I was shopping over at Micheals and saw all these beautiful fall flowers in purple and blue tones and inspired me to create a fall project with all these gorgeous images and coordinating dies from Heartfelt Creations.  
I made the little basket my focal point and I wanted the flowers to really pop, so I kept everything in tones of muted greens, golds, oranges, and browns.
After I colored and shaped all the leaves I applied some gold Inka-Gold, I just rubbed it on with my finger.  For the flowers I only applied it to the edge of the petals.
Here is the flower on the basket, I added a bow made with natural raffia.
The background paper was stamped with the "Large Fancy Flourish" image, I used perfect medium ink and several colors of perfect pearls to achieve the pretty sparkly background.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and hope you enjoyed my project, make sure to stop by the HFC Blog for lots more fun and inspirational projects.
Until next time.
