Pumpkin Patch

 Today is a rather sad day for the Dies R Us team
as this will be our last card for the DRU challenge
as it is being closed permanently and I have been
part of it for a long long time as well as on 
the DRU  Inspiration team.

For my last card I used a favorite die/stencil from PoppyStamps that
I have used before but thought it was time to bring it out again
'Autumn Leaves Sidekick Frame and Stencil'.

After die cutting, I placed the stencil over the top and used all
Tim Holtz Distress inks for my leaves
spiced marmalade, fired brick, mustard seed and peeled paint.
I adhered the finished piece to a piece of paper from Echo Park
and used another print piece from the same pad for within my frame.

 I hope to see you at the Dies R Us challenge blog and
join in for our very last challenge...thanks for visiting!!

Entering the following challenges:

Oh Diane, I'm in love with this sweet, fall card!! I have this set too and now am inspired to pull it out and give it some love before the fall season is over. Thank you for always inspiring me.

I've not seen this set before and I love it. You're coloring of the leaves is wonderful for this adorable fall card. The set is now on my wish list (still the enabler :-).)

Wow I can't believe they are stopping the design team, I was on it for a little while too, you did a beautiful card to end the time, love the coloring of the leaves and the great image you have inside the rectangle.

Oh, what an amazing card, Diane! I love the leaf frame and how you placed the DP within the frame! And, the leaves are inked with beautiful color! Thank you for your wonderful inspiration as always here on the DRU team and Paper Sweeties! I'm sure I'll see you around blog land, take care!!

Oooh, I have one of these side kick frames but not this one. The way you shaded the leaves is perfection! I'm getting in the mood for fall cards. This is gorgeous, Diane! Interesting that they're closing the challenge. I guess there are reasons.
