Hi and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week our theme is...

THANKS/THANKGIVING

I've had the Hero Arts Large Pattern Flower stamp some time but never used it as yet so here is it's first outing.  I started off using orange and rusty colours - it looked stunning but wouldn't photograph - probably the lousy photographer!!!
I used to have a Magnolia soulangeana with the deep pink colours so I opted with pink.
I embossed the base and coloured the flowers with Distressed inks. The darker border is a very dark pink although it does look almost black.
