A Paper Pieced Mum

I know that I’ve mentioned this before, but Chrysanthemums are one of my favorite flowers and I love seeing them as Fall approaches.  Each year it’s a big decision for me to decide which color I’ll buy.  However, I wanted to come up with a pretty paper version, too.  Since I couldn’t find a stamped image in any of my collections, I turned to the May Flowers framelits and used the largest flower framelit and paper pieced it with different shades of yellow.

This card features the colors: Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron.

The sentiment is from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set and is punched with the Classic Label punch.  The envelope is one that I had in my craft room but you can easily make a custom sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  I’m on a bit of a mission to use what I have on hand and this envelope fit the bill perfectly!
