What a beautiful gallery Robin has. I was just enthralled with all of her creations, but chose this one to case in her honor: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=237923. First I cut my leaves from watercolor paper using my dies. I then rolled the wheel over them and sponged them using the various inks. I then inked them with versa mark and used the ETEE and heat embossed giving them a shine. I stamped my acorn and inked and heat embossed as well. I then embossed my large mat using the swiss dots folder and sponged More Mustard around the edges. I cut my diamond frame, sponged more mustard on top and popped that up on top of the swiss dots piece. I stamped my sentiment in Timber Brown and cut out with the Floral Ovals die, sponged chocolate chip on the edge and popped that up in the middle of the frame. I then adhered my leaves and acorn in the lower corner, added some bling and it's done. Even though there are many steps to this card, it is all worth it in the end. It's a beautiful design Robin and hope you like my version of it. TFL!!

I completely agree with your sentiment. I am ALWAYS inspired by nature. DH and I have to run to the window a lot just to see the beauty. And those must be Wisconsin leaves. Yes! I love colored leaves AND the wonderful lattice frame. Great cards.
