 Today I am spotlighting the Fall Leaves set and the Bare Tree die in my project. This is a great time of the year to use this die.

I used the Bare Tree & Fall Leaves set

Here is my card

To achieve this two-tone tree. I just cut 2 bare trees from different colors of cardstocks and attached them together oin an offset manner.
I used alcohol inks on the leaves to get the various colors.

Here is a closeup of my multiloop bow made with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool.
I stacked the brown sheer bow on top of the gold stripped double loop bow.

These 2 ribbons were perfect colors for my fall themed card.

Thanks for stopping in today, I will be back Saturday for my last project. Hope you can join me again.

FABULOUS colors. And those leaves are beautiful. Before I forget, like I did on the last posting, awesome bow. I like how you attached one on top of the you tie it on or glue it? What glue works with that kind of ribbon? Or do you use clear adhesive dots? Oh sorry...just thinking out loud. This is so pretty and the leaves look waxed. Did you ever wax leaves as a kid? I remember doing that and getting wax on our fingers and we'd peel it off and toss it back into the pot of melted wax on the stove. Anyway, before I rattle on any longer, this is gorgeous and I really like everything about it. It's very creative looking. I can tell I'm going to have to let my hair down to fit in with this creative team. Oh boy....a real challenge. XXOO, Gail
