Designed 2 Delight - Autumn Mums

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!  Yes, today is my birthday and I figured that I deserved a little shout out.  I'm 46 years old today...unbelievable!  Where has the time gone?  Just a minute ago I was 35 and getting married.  And just before that I was in my 20's, and my whole life was in front of me.  Hmmmm, maybe being closer to 50 than to 40 is making me feel like I'm on the "downside" of being over the hill.

Anyway, on to happier thoughts, like this beautiful fall image from Designed 2 Delight for the Friday Image Challenge.  I loved coloring these Autumn Mums.  The set includes potted mums, mums alone and 3 sentiments - what a deal if you didn't get it for free for playing along last week.  The paper has been around in my collection for quite some time - it's Chatterbox.  I used 2 Nestabilities dies around the image and 2 different border punches in order to qualify for the Designed 2 Delight Design Team Saturday Challenge Die Cut Divas as well.
