Ahhhhh, don't you just love this mum?  I have been super excited by all the florals that Mark's Finest Papers has been releasing.  Chrysanthemum is just as wonderful as the previously released florals!  Just wait until you get to color it!!!  I can't recall if there are pink Mums or not, but I saw a color combination and just went for it.  I fussy cut out the flower head with a craft knife first and then my scissors.  I stamped my card base and adhered the flower head to my card base.  A sponge dauber and some watermark ink helped me create a simple background to allow the Mum to take center stage. 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Come on back tomorrow for more creativity!

Gorgeous thinking of you card. Love how you fussy cut your Chrysanthemum and outlined it in gold.

Where everyone else was using fall colors on their mums, you just had to go a different way and make this gorgeous card. Great job Toni!

Love the background for your beautiful mum! I don't know if there are pink mums in nature either; but I've seen mums died many different colors -- pink could have been one of them.

Kathy Bradley said...

Oooh - very pretty and elegant. Your Mum is just gorgeous against the green BG you created!!

I have seen some pale lavender mums that are very close to your pink color.....which is lovely!! Very pretty card. I like the subtle polka-dots in the background.
