Is it Fall already???

Goodday friends,
First;y I would like to welcome some new friends. So glad you have joined and hope you will pop back often and find some inspiration in what I have to show.

Not sure how the weather is in your part of the world, but we are having glorious..almost summer weather. Temp to day is 27deg C. The blossoms are out on the trees and it is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner....but I know only too well we will still have a bit of winter creeping in.

Tuesday at The Outlawz is Colour Challenge day and this week our Inspirational photo and colour palette was chosen by Margaret, with the "Awfully Hot Augsut" twist of adding fall bling to your project.

With fall being very far from our thoughts here in SA, I did manage to put together a card.

I placed my cuttlebug dies together in a square and cut out the leaves, then used this negative matting it onto the red. My ribbon was not quite the gold colur required. Added a punched out sentiment and my bling is a glass leaf bead.  

I suggest you go and have a look at the cards made by the other DT members...they are quite stunning and then join in with your creation. Lovely prizes to be won from our sponsors.

I am going to enter a challenge or two 
KaboodleDoodles challenge #133... Thank you project
The crazy challenge #127...Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp and Show...Anything goes
Delightful Sketches challenge...punches and dies

Ursula...your card is so pretty. I really like your leaf theme on this. I also like the way you've added your sentiment with the yellow ribbon and the sweet little metal leaf charm. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
