Dies R Us Inspiration - Happy Fall Y'all

Hello All!
Today I'm filling in for DT member Felicita over on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
It's hard to believe how FAST our weather changed here in Ohio!  One weekend it was in the 90s and the next weekend it was FALL ... temperatures in the 60s & low 70s!  So that's what the inspiration was for today's creation.

The store product I have used today is:

Elizabeth Craft Design - Dies - Hot Chocolate

Impression Obsession - Dies - Small Leaf Set

Lawn Fawn - Happy Fall Line Border Die

Cheapo Dies - Cursive Font

Your Next Stamp Paper Pad - 6

After gathering all my pieces, this card came together in a SNAP!
I had a few scraps of watercolored papers laying around that I had created weeks ago that worked perfectly for my die cut leaves and sentiment.  I've used various Tim Holtz Oxide Distress inks in the creation of those papers.

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today!
