Season of Blessings

A new challenge is up and running at the 
Dies R Us challenge blog and the theme is

I started out my card with a black card stock base.

I save all my circle negatives for inking up moons
and that is just what I did for this card.
I used TH Distress Inks wild honey and spiced marmalade.
I placed the moon so my little owl could sit on his branch
right over the moon.

I die cut a tree using
which, by the way is where the little owl came from,
part of the birch tree set.

I cut leaves (lots) using a small leaf from
and adhered them to the tree here and there.

I added a few pumpkins at the bottom of the tree
using die cuts from
A few of the same leaves from up above were added around a few pumpkins.

A black cat was die cut  from black metallic paper
Do you suppose he is eyeing up that little hoot owl?

Once all that was done, I became very brave and stamped
my sentiment right on the card stock with SU Soft Suede ink.
The sentiment is a very old one from Unity,
I love how nice and large it is!
Whew, I didn't mess it!

I wanted to mention that ALL the papers used
other than the card stocks
were from my scrap bags of papers.

Join in the challenge with us,

Wow, I love that moon! And the tree and the pumpkins and the cat! Cute scene and, again, I'm in awe of your die collection. What fun! Someone sent me a gorgeous pink and white birthday card with an incredible die on it, plus embossing, pearls, flower, ribbon -- talk about gorgeous! Gee I wonder who sent it? Seriously, thank you, Diane!
