Harvest Love

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

Happy Fall!
I tell you, it sure is looking like (and feeling like, too) fall around here!
The leaves are all over the place (my poor hubby..teehee)!!
However, I don't know about you, but I love everything about fall....
the cool, crisp, clean air, gorgeous hues of color, all that yummy fall food!
It's just the best!

We have a new challenge starting today at Dies R Us.
Our theme is Thankful!!



I basically started with a cream card base, added designer paper,
and let the "die cut" fun begin!
If you don't know what an angel wing is,
it's a die to cut a back to put under your die cut if you wish.
This particular die comes with both the doily die AND the wing.
The die was cut from a gorgeous metallic paper.

The flowers were made using 
Cheery Lynn Designs Cutie Fringe 3 and Cutie Fringe 4.
These are the easiest flowers to create.
You just grab your tweezers or quill tool if you have one, and roll,
glue and you have a flower!
I sprayed mine with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Gold.
They have a nice gold sparkle IRL.
I also added cranberry pearls to the centers of each.

For the leaves of the flowers
I used PoppyStamps Posh Outline

A bow,  gold Dew Drops and a sentiment were added to finish!
The sentiment is from the same pack of metallic paper,
it says "Plant smiles, grow laughter, harvest love"!!

(edited to add, there was a slight mix-up
of our themes on our DT only blog, so
my card is more for Fall, then Thankful...it happens..LOL)

Well, it could be used as a Thanksgiving card, couldn't it? I would. I'm coveting that leaf doily. Very unique. When I go for a new doily die I'll be all over that one! Gorgeous metallic paper you used with it, too. Really pretty card, Diane!
