Autumn Leaves Are Falling

Greetings and thank you all for the wonderful comments about my super fun vacation.

Today's design is using my favorite and long retired Lady Dancing die.  I read on the web about using a piece of acetate paper and your cloud dies and making a mask from it.  You just place your die at the top of the acetate and run it through the die cutting machine.  Take another die and rotate your acetate and die cut and so forth.  I have 4 different dies now on the template.  When you use the acetate is works great and the ink cleans off right away with just wiping it off.

I added the Art Glitter Gala Glitz - Orange to the trim of the dress and hat.
