Twisted Tuesday!

Twisted Tuesday time!  Today's fun challenge is called Cooling Off!  Autumn is in the air and with that comes the wonderful relief of Summer...the cooling off!  Our challenge was to interpret that however we liked and run with it!  The twist is that there must be some inked edges!  Here is what I came up with:

This card just screams August to me!  I used the fun new Woodgrain Embossing Folder to make the background.  I used my Big Shot and the beautiful new Autumn Accents die to cut out the gorgeous leaves.  I cut them from the new Champagne colored glimmer paper (I am in love!!) and stacked them.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the trees are from Lovely As A Tree. Two of my favorite sets of all time!  

This challenge made me feel happy and  excited about the arrival of Autumn.  It is my very favorite season and it is right around the corner! Cool crisp air,  smell of apple cider in the air, big ole' plump happy pumpkins!  

Ok, what are you waiting for?!  Grab your Fall feeling goodies and make a creation!  Head on over to the Twisted Tuesday site and  check out the challenge!  Also, be sure to check out the creations made by the amazing design team!  They are all quite talented! :)  See you over there!

Love your sparkley leaves. This stamp set has always been one of my favorites and is timeless. I'm so not ready for Autumn yet.

Love that glimmer paper and the wood grain embossing folder. I love Fall too but sad Summer went by too fast.

I never tire of seeing that stamp set. I just love it!

The inked edges on the embossing makes the wood really stand out.

Great job on this one!
