Dies R Us Challenge - FALL

Hello Friends!

Here we are in the middle of November and that means it's time for another fun challenge over on the  Dies R Us Challenge Blog. Our theme today is:

Happy Fall Ya'll

Dies used on today's card are:

 Tutti Designs - Dies - Fall Leaves Scroll

 Tutti Designs - Word Set - Hello
Cheapo Dies - Font - Newsprint

 Tutti Designs - Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles

I began today's card by make a watercolor background panel using watercolor paper and various Fall colored Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Then used that fall colored panel to do my die cutting.

Once I had all my pieces die cut, I then cut a white card stock rectangle and started building my design.  What a fun card to create and would work for a Fall Birthday or maybe just a note card!!

Don't forget to check out sister store in Canada . . .
Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts 

It will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

I hope you will come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.
