Rustic Gaillardia Arrangement

I hope you are enjoying all the cards Susan's Design Team has been posting for her new Spellbinders Autumn Floral die sets.  

Today I used the Gaillardia,  Bittersweet, Rosemary, and Woodland Garden Leaves dies to complete the Fall arrangement on my card. 

This is a 5x7 inch card.  I used a piece of burlap, that is frayed around the edges, for the background, over the cream colored card stock.  It was attached using a tape runner, or you could use double sided tape.  Attach it at an angle.

Using the Foliage & Ladybug die set, four Berry Branches were die cut using white card stock.  Brown ink was sponged on the branches then sponged again lightly with green ink,  on the front and back.  Die cut the covering for the bittersweet using pale yellow card stock.

Use the Foliage & Ladybug die set and die cut two Eucalyptus leaf branches, using white card stock.  Sponge green ink on the front and back.  Use maroon PanPastel to brush the tips of each leaf.  

Create three Gaillardia flowers using Susan's  Gaillardia die set.  The petals were sponged with a dark yellow ink , front and back, then a brick red ink sponged on the lower (base) part of the petals.  Create the stamen using brown card stock for the die cuts.  Add pollen to the tips. Die cut the leaves, color and shape the Gaillardia leaves.

Use the Foliage & Ladybug die set to die cut several Rosemary sprigs.  Color and shape with the Leaf Tool.

Use the Woodland Garden Leaves die set and create a few leaves to scatter around the arrangement.  I colored them with Distress Inks.

Arrange the Bittersweet, Eucalyptus leaves and Rosemary over the background  Attach three Gaillardia flowers over in the leaves and branches.  Tuck in a few Woodland Garden Leaves.

Thanks for your visit.  See you tomorrow with another creation.
