Here Comes a New Release from Top Dog Dies!

Hi Everyone!
More new dies from Top Dog Dies are coming our way; I and the rest of the Top Dog Dies Design Team have sneak peeks for you all this week!  Keep reading for a chance to win, too! 
Today I am sharing this uber awesome die for fall, for the farm life or for rural living-the Top Dog Dies Windmill Die.
 Having traveled across the country twice this summer, I spent plenty of hours driving through the heartland of America and saw plenty of fields of crops and windmills. This card is a nod to America's Heartland~

I went looking for a little inspiration for this die.  I found this amazing image when I did a google image search for 'windmill'~

All I did for my background was sponging with a bit of masking to create the wisps of clouds and the sun.  I used adhesive paper and punched a circle for the sun and tore strips of the same paper for the clouds.  As I sponged, I removed and moved around the cloud masks to vary the intensity of the colors.  The Top Dog Dies Windmill Die was die cut in both Early Espresso cs and a piece of  Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet
You may be wondering what other new Top Dog Dies are being released~

Fun, right!?  My guess is you are seeing some 'gotta haves' right now (bet you couldn't guess that my personal fave is the windmill!)!  Well, you are in luck!  These Top Dog Dies are being released tomorrow!  Want a chance at free dies?  You can enter for your chance to win the entire new release HERE!
