Autumn Blessings

Can it really be Autumn already?
 Where did the Summer go?

I am diving into my card making again and loving every minute. I decided to use the challenges to get me motivated to replenish my card stash. I love Flourishes, llc and decided to enter their Timeless Tuesday #188 challenge. This weeks theme was to make a card or project with a "Fall/Autumn" theme. Well, I only have two Flourish stamps sets, Waterlily and  Humming Along and I didn't think I could pull those off with a fall theme. So, I pulled a dusty stamp off my shelf to make a card to play along. Guess I need to ask for a gift certificate, from my family,  so I can purchase some new sets from Flourishes. So, here is my card.
I made this card very simple so that I can send it to my brother. I guess guys hate all the bling, but I added a few little green square blings on my tag banner. Do you think he will notice? LOL.

I stamped the background with a tiny background leaf stamp on Kraft paper with a dark brown ink to match my brown cardstock. The sunflower image (Anita's) is stamped in Oak Brown (CTMH) and the sentiment is from TPC Studio Autumn Leaves. I used some Copics to color my image.
On the inside I used a sentiment and coordinating paper.

Thanks for stopping by today.
