You've Got This? Not Really.

I love the inspiration picture at The Paper Players theme challenge this week. We are asked to create a card with the theme Autumn Floral and I knew right away I wanted to put the rustic wooden planter on my card. I had to fiddle a little while to get the angle right and then to get the wood grain going the "right" way. After staring at it for a good 20 mins I decided to draw the box outline and then, finally, I was happy with it. Let me tell you, filling the planter was not any easier!  So many options, flower stamps and looks!  Even now, after I've deemed the card complete, photographed and prepared it to post, I see I want to mess with the position of the flowers some more. SIGH, oh well. This card will be at my next card class so I will make another one myself and play around with it a bit more.  

The Paper Players Challenge can be found HERE.  I'm also entering this card in the challenge at TGIF Challenges found HERE. The challenge there is a Tic-Tac-Toe and my card is represented in the diagonal, Watercolor-Designer Series Paper-Metallics.
