using new dies

Hi friends.  Fall is definitely in the air.  Today is cool and rainy.  The leaves are changing and falling.  I love this season. 

I've been working on cards for my class next week, so I thought I'd show you the first one. 

I recently bought a bunch of memory box dies, and since this class is all about die cutting and embossing, it was a good time to pull them out. 

This is a really simple card.  I started with a white card base.  The background is die cut with a big scallop oval die from Spellbinders, and then sponged with real red and yoyo yellow inks.  I chose these colors for a facebook challenge in the OWSE group

The flowers are a Memory Box die called chloe stem, cut twice from black card stock. 

The sentiment is from SU - teeny tiny wishes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
