Cut It Up Challenge #2: "Fall Themed Project"

***for the Cardz TV Stamps Bling challenge go here***
***for the Pause Dream Enjoy Challnge go here***

Welcome back to another Cut It Up challenge.  This week our inspiration is Fall.  Please use the photo below for inspiration.

This challenge is being sponsored by Trendy Twine and My Thoughts Exactly!!  They will be offering a prize bundle to one lucky winner:-)

Here is my take on this challenge -

I used a cut file from Lettering Delights set "Feels Like Autumn".  I used two cuttlebug folders to give my basket more texture and I inked around the edges of my die cut with some Tim Holtz tea dyed distress ink.  I added a few doodles with my white gel pen and popped it up on foam tape.  The crinkle ribbon is homemade and the sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps set "Garden Greetings".   My patterned paper is from last year's DCWV fall stack and the cardstock is Recollections.  Now it is your turn to enter the fall challenge at Cut It Up Challenges.  Head over to the Cut It Up challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this challenge and to enter your project in the challenge.
