DDD - FALLing into new Friendships!

Hi friends!

 It's time for another card duel with the Dueling Darlings!
Our lovely hostesses this month, Judy and Deb, came up with
one of the BEST themes - FALL into new friendships 
Judy was our hostess and sent us the most
generously packed, Autumn gorgeousness kit ever!
You've heard the saying legs for days?
This was Fall card kit for days!

I do confess that time got the best of me 
and I struggled a bit on how to put this all together.
I so wanted to use the small tree and leaves die cuts,
sequins and foil papers, too!
So, I spy future cards ... lots of 'em.
Thank you, Judy! ♥


 Be sure to see what the rest of the Divas and Dazzlers
 have made with their Fall themed card kits!
You won't be disappointed!
You can find them in my sidebar ♥

Thanks for stopping by :)
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings! ♥
