Top Dog Dies 'Leaves' You Loving Fall!

Hello Everyone!

Have I mentioned how much I love fall? :)  It is the prettiest weekend and we are starting to see glorious fall color.  I have used some brand new Top Dog Dies for this week's TDD inspiration.  My inspiration comes from the beautiful trees outside!  :)

These brand new Fall Foliage Dies from Top Dog Dies are just the best!  Not too big and not too small, perfect for embellishing your cards or making them the main focus of your cards.  The leaves were simply die cut from cs and sponged around the edges.  Easy Peasy! 
I have also used the brand new Top Dog Die,  Signature Beatrix Die.  Used for my top mat, I cut a circle from it and then using a Versamark marker and a slightly smaller circle template, I ran a line of Versamark ink just inside the cut line and heat embossed it with gold ep.  Behind at is a stenciled forest made with a Crafter's Workshop stencil.
The bottom mat is embellished by running the edges of the cardstock over a Versamark pad and then heat embossing with gold ep.  My sentiment, which is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, is also embossed in gold ep and yes, I do LOVE the current gold' trend!
I borrowed the sketch from Lesley Croghan's, 'The Challenge'~

I love, love, love this sketch and can see myself using it over and over. 

I just got a box of new SU goodies and could not wait to use the new gold baker's twine.  Yep!  GOLD!
Seeing as this is all about gorgeous fall colors, I am linking it up to the AAA challenge, 'Fall Colors'.

Tracy has a gorgeous fall Mood Board this month with some great gold inspiration!

I am also linking up to 613 Avenue Create for their 'Anything Goes or CAS' challenge this week and also with my newest challenge find, ScrapbookerPhD, Challenge 16- Fall with a Die Cut and a Stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!
