A Fall Gathering

Hello Friends, it's Diane here today with you on the
Classy Cards 'n Such blog to share my latest fall creation!
I don't know about you, but fall is "my" favorite time of the year.
All the pretty colors, crisp, fresh air, pumpkins, flannels, and just being outside to
harvest what you can.  Have you ever taken a walk through the woods and "gathered"
bits and pieces of fall??  That is what my card is about today.  The "simple things in life"!

 
The first thing I found on my "walk" was a "pine branch" by Impression Obession....
then there were a couple of discarded "feathers" by Cherry Lynn Designs...aren't they pretty?
This is a brand new, just released die called "Quills & Ink Pot"
A few more steps and I found the most beautiful "Maple and Oak" leaves by Impression Obession
and laying close by was a "nutty acorn" by Memory Box!
 
My pine branch, leaves, acorn, and feathers were all painted the colors of fall with
 Autumn Brilliance Twinkling H2O's.  Have you tried these yet??  Once you use them, you will be pulling them out to use over and over.  There is a wonderful selection in the store here!  a quick "tip" for their use....they will arrive "dry", just lightly spritz with water, then paint them on....when done, just leave the lids off until they are dry...just that simple!!
 
The pretty ribbon I used is textured two-tone by May Arts, and the beautiful sentiment is from the Flourishes
set "Autumn Blessings" which I stamped with Dew Drop Brilliance Cosmic Copper.
 
I hope you enjoyed your walk in the woods with me.....see you soon!!
