The Beauty of Fall

This is my post on the Dies R Us inspiration blog today!

Happy Thursday and first day of October to you!!

Today I have a fun fall card to share.

I started with a Daffodil yellow card base.
I topped it with a piece of white card stock,
then designer paper from  Fancy Pants "Park Bench".
Darn that Hobby Lobby with their 50% off paper pads sale...lol.


Now comes the fun part.....the die!!

I used Spellbinders Nature's Window.
What makes this so fun, is that the die cuts an open window.
You can put anything in the window that you desire!
I added a snippet of burlap behind it for texture,
then added a Cheery Lynn Designs Fall Pumpkin.


Perched on the pumpkin is a tiny owl cut from
Cheery Lynn Designs Birch Tree With Critters.
I even added a couple of green gems for the eyes!
I just love this Maple Leaf with it's "peek a boo" window!

I finished off with a sentiment from JustRite.

Visit us here Monday - Friday for great inspiration
and see lots of the "must have" dies in use.

for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store,
plus lots of inspiration there to get your mojo going, too!

See you again soon!

I thought this was an adorable idea with the fall leaf, window & the owl & pumpkin inside. This is the first "creativity" I've seen on a blog in a long time!
