Nature At It's Best

September 1st!!
You can already see the days are shorter, the sun comes up later
and goes down earlier.  I don't know about you, but I love Fall, 
but even that is short lived...where does time go anyways??

September 1st also brings us to a new challenge
at Dies R Us and the theme is NATURE.

Easy, right? As nature includes so many many things!
so many things I couldn't decided between plants~animals~or weather!

In the long run, the air is feeling more like Fall
and I decided to go with fall leaves!

I used the Tutti Designs Leaves background die cut from white card stock,
Then inked with several Memento Dew Drop Inks...
yummy colors like 
Bamboo Leaves~Potter's Clay~Cantaloupe~Rhubarb Stalk~Desert Sand.
I inked with the Picket Fence Studios Life Saving Brushes.

I adhered my leaf panel when inked to a black card stock
which really showed off the colors.

The I used the Karen Burniston Autumn Word Set for the sentiment.
All links are below!

Pop on over to see all the fabulous creations from the Design Team and join in with us for this and easy peasy

Wow Diane, the colors on this card are stunning! What a beautiful use of this stand alone leaf die. The vibrant colors pop on the black background. I love how you cut the sentiment using the same mottled colors. This is so pretty! Did you spray the cardstock with water after you inked it? The colors look so perfectly blended...

This is beautiful and screams Fall & Nature! I had totally forgotten about this die but it looks awesome so will have to grab mine and do a few cuts for fall cards! Thanks! Great job and hope you're having an awesome time at the lake!

What a beautiful card with that leafy die background. And, the colors are fantastic for a Fall arrangement.

An absolutely beautiful card with one of my favorite dies! Wow, the colors are especially scrumptious against the black. I love all the seasons, but early fall might be my favorite. It means I can start to wind down a little. Keeping up the garden is not easy when we're gone so much in the spring and summer. It's wearing on me.
