Dashing Fall Dachshund

Good morning folks~  Today's card was made for the Marianne Design Challenge  to make an easel card and since it's using just dies, I'll be entering it into 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge as well.

I started by making the card base using this pretty doily frame and doily designed by Petra Van Dam, cut out of white card stock.  The Daschaund is so adorable in his little fall sweater!  A cluster of oak leaves and an acorn from the Creatables collection finishes off the front.
I was inspired by the colors from City Crafter Challenge ~ All neutral tones.  His sweater is fashioned after the copper tub.

On the inside is a gourd from Tiny's Creatables.

I'll also be entering this card in to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Fall / Harvest

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
