Autumn Splendor

Can you believe it's August already??
I am so ready for Fall....
it is usually so pretty....
I decided to make my first "Fall" card....

When purchasing dies, I always try to think of different ways to use them
besides the "intended" use....
So, I came up with this gorgeous fall basket of flowers
using the Cheery Lynn Designs Large Spring Basket 2.....
I cut it from SU Crumb Cake cardstock and inked it with TH Wild Honey Distress Ink
My flowers were made with CLD Cuties 1..
aren't they just the cutest little things??
The card opens with a "hidden" brad (under the bow) and mini TH staple
I am entering this in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge to make a "shaped" card

The dies I used are all Cheery Lynn Designs
 Cuties 1, Tropical Leaves, Spring Basket 2, Large Spring Basket Angel Wing

all my dies were purchased from Joan's Gardens
