This Is Just To Die For! #133… A Sassy Challenge!

Sassy Cheryl's Sassy Sally

Are you ready for another Sassy Challenge? This was a fun one, if I do say so myself…

Using Dies!

I’m the challenge hostess again this week and you know how much I love my dies! One or a handful… doesn’t matter!

There’s a real chill in the air this week, feeling really Fallish, plus I just got this new Spellbinders Fall Foliage and hadn’t even opened it yet! They just seemed to go hand in hand with Sassy Sally and Her Autumn Leaves!

This is my absolute favorite time of year, the colors, the crunch of the leaves as you walk along… dressing in layers, the crispness and aroma in the air… I could go on…………………… you get the picture!

So, I colored Sally with Copics, sponged some clouds with my homemade cloud template and cut her out using Spellbinders Labels 17, which I edged with a Copic to match her clothes.

The leaves are a combination of  Glimmer Mist {yellow daisy, honey dew, copper, starfish} and Distress inks {stormy sky, spiced marmalade, bundled sage}

This is a fabulous Fall card, Dawn. I love the effect of your leaves. They look so real! Yes, we have fresh snow on the mountains here in Anchorage. Luckily, we are staying above freezing temps though!
