Time Out #41 - Inspired By Words

Hi friends!  The challenge this week over at the Time Out blog is our Inspired by Words challenge.  Here are the words to be inspired by:
Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile.
William Cullum Bryant

So here's how I was inspired by the words.  I chose this quilted leaf/border die using different papers for the various leaves and the "smile" sentiment. This card took me FOREVER to make!  I die cut that shape five times.  Once from the burgundy paper and then four times from the different pattern papers.  I tried several placements of all those pieces before I settled on this design.  I thought this was going to be so easy!  Ha!  I like the outcome, so I guess the time I put into it was worth it.
You can see more from the design team and our guest, Glenda, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

This card is so gorgeous--love the warm color scheme--it really says fall and cozyness. I can imagine how long it took to piece together, because I have tried to do something similar with other dies, and it always takes about 10times as long as I think. The end result is really worth it, as you have a beautiful card to send to someone and warm their heart and make them smile.
