Fall Into Autumn With Fizzy Moon

I don't generally use autumnal colours much in my crafting, but as there are so many autumn-themed challenges around right now I thought I'd better give it a go. It also gave me the opportunity to use one of the dleightful new Fizzy Moon stamps I bought at Port Sunlight from Jill at The Hobby House, as the large flowers are suitable for any colour scheme - not to mention a ticket stamp and some paper I bought from Jill too :-)

Stamps: Fizzy Moon "With Love"; Whimsy blank ticket stamp; See-D "Celebrations" birthday greeting;
Media: Promarkers, Copics, and TH distress inks in Dried Marigold and Vintage Photo;
Papers: unknown (floral); BasicGrey (plain) and Prima "Botanicals" (script);
Supplies: lace gifted from Dawny P; flowers from Sweet Lilac and Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House;
Tools: Fleur-de-lys square nestabilities; Tim Holtz distressing tool on paper edges.

I noticed after I had done all my colouring etc. that somehow some of my distres ink had splodged onto the corner of my backing paper ... and as it was a birthday gift it was the only piece I  had! Oopsie!! Since I took the pic I have improvised with a couple of gold corner peel offs in the bottom left and top right-hand corners ;-)
