Dies R Us Challenge October 15, 2017 (Leaves)

Hi, Friends!

I'm here to share with you my card for the Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme is (Leaves).  I made a fall card for my husband.  He loves cashew nuts and held off until after his lab work for his cholesterol check.  It wasn't as high as the last one.  It was much lower in fact.  So, I bought him a can of cashews to!  I hope he likes the card!

And, here is my card...

I started with a light orange base and paired it with Lawn Fawn zig zag Rectangle Stackable dies.  I wanted to incorporate more gold on the card, so I applied gold strips over the frame.  The squirrel and sentiment is from PTI.  The leaves and squirrel were water colored using zig markers.  More gold with die cut pumpkins from Cheery Lynn.  Gold twine and gold nuvo crystal drops to finish the card.

 All dies that were used for my card with links are listed below.  I hope you create a project using dies and join us for the challenge!

 There are so many choices at Dies R Us store!  And, new items are added all the time!  I'd love to see your project in the challenge...happy creating!
